The superb, multilayered ‘Out of My Head’ written and directed by Susanna Styron, examines one of the cruelest medical afflictions imaginable: Migraines.

With verve, visual flair, mixed media ranging from historical illustrations, colorful drawings, classic paintings and film clips, ‘Head’ races along as Styron amasses an amazing squadron of medical specialists from, literally, around the world to discuss theories, research, treatments.

When I say a headache I don’t mean just a headache, I mean something that would totally brutalize you.
