In this psychological thriller, what at first seem to be the wholly insane (and gruesome) self-mutilations of a madman who is also probably a murderer are gradually revealed as the quite logical actions of a frantic man driven by circumstances to incredible extremes. Peter Winter (Peter Greene) is the madman in question, searching for his daughter on an island off the coast of New Brunswick while attempting to evade capture by a persistent detective. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Watch It Now
a daring and disturbing cinematic experiment that takes us inside the mind of a struggling schizophrenic for an unrelenting 80-minute ride
Consegue retratar os sintomas da esquizofrenia de maneira particularmente eficaz graças ao brilhantismo de seu design de som e à atuação intensa de Greene.
Kerrigan, in the film's denouement, might have succeeded in defying our expectations to the extent that, as in The Sixth Sense, his victory renders what came before it superfluous.
Kerrigan succeeds in challenging stereotypes of mental illness as seen in movies and TV: Clean, Shaven is a stark ripose to the Hollywood notion that the mentally ill are fonts of simple wisdom and goodness.
Seriously gritty and entirely creepy.
