This is a very cool Scorsese short that you can easily watch on Flixster's page for this film. For '67 this is some nice blood fx, very dark and consistently colored blood. Great little soundtrack, but some sound fx would improve this greatly. Many say that this short is about Vietnam, but as FilmAddykt observes, this can also be a metaphor for vanity. Expanding on that thought, I think this is about self-destruction brought about by vanity, ego, being over the top, or any similar destructive excess which one perpetrates in pursuit of perfection.
Gripping, bloody and basic early attempt by Scorsese
