'A fascinating companion piece to David Cronenbergâ€™s Crash or Kirby Dickâ€™s Sick, Pain Isâ€¦ combines interviews, archival footage and Dwoskinâ€™s thoughtful voice-over to arrive at a scrupulous anatomy of pain (encompassing disease, dental work and sadomasochism). The interviews range from those who suffer from chronic pain to those who find pleasure in wilfully inflicting pain. Dwoskin doesnâ€™t belabour the distinction, choosing instead to search for underlying meanings. Without getting into tortured semiotics, he examines the language of pain and wonders, amongst other things, if it is possible "to make an image of pain"'. â€“ Dennis Lim
