Audience Reviews for Clean, Shaven

    One of the few films managed to construct an accurate perception on how schizophreniacs see this world. Winter is a man who recently was removed from psychiatric ward, he went on a quest to find his daughter while dealing with a changed world. It's really powerful yet disturbing. Definite worth watching as it was one of John Waters' favourites.

    Hallucinating the whole time, a man recently released from a mental institution tracks down his long-lost daughter, while being pursued by a detective who believes he's responsible for the murder of a young girl. Subjective and disorienting, CLEAN, SHAVEN is one of the most harrowing portraits of paranoid schizophrenia ever filmed; ranks just below PSYCHO and REPULSION in the pantheon of horrifying studies of mental illness.

    The unrelenting tension found in "Clean, Shaven" is what makes it such a memorable experience. Lodge Kerrigan crafts an unsettling and upsetting atmosphere that's so full of strange noises and ambiguity that it kind of digs at you. Peter Greene turns in an admirable understated, off-kilter performance that's best when he's delivering lines instead of practicing self-mutilation, and the infamous fingernail scene is one that'll make your stomach turn. "Clean, Shaven" is short and distant, and I don't think I'll ever watch it again, but it's a fine debut from Kerrigan.

    A disturbing film but hats off to Peter Greene for taking on the role of a man who is clearly not in control of his psychological issues but still driven to reuniting with his daughter. A very challenging role.
