Peter Winter is a young schizophrenic who is desperately trying to get his daughter back from her adoptive family. He attempts to function in a world that, for him, is filled with strange voices, electrical noise, disconcerting images, and jarringly sudden emotional shifts. He clings to his humanity like a raft, barely afloat in a sea of terror. In a brief moment of congruence, he shatters his image reflected in a window, perhaps to more properly align it with his fragmented psyche. During his quest, he runs afoul of the law and an ongoing murder investigation. Written by

The policeman picks up a cigarette butt from the end table using a pair of tweezers. In closeup the burnt end is pointing up; the wider shot immediately after, when he brings it to his nose, shows the burnt end pointing down. See more »
Is my mother really dead?
What was she like?
[close to tears]
She was... She wasn't like anyone else. She was different. Really different. There's a lot of people out there who - who want to hurt you. And wherever, wherever, wherever you are. And she was good.

CLEAN, SHAVEN is one the most most powerful movie experiences I have had. The film resonates in a way few pictures have ever dared to. The still camera work, avant garde editing artfully blended with incredible sound mixing and a tour-de-force performance by Peter Greene makes this movie one of the most important independent films in recent history. Lodge Kerrigan has an acute understanding of the power of stillness rarely seen in American film making and Peter Greene gives a performance that will haunt you forever.
If you are interested in film as an art form, watch CLEAN, SHAVEN and enjoy a film maker and actor who have brought the most haunting and unforgettable portrayal of a man struggling with mental illness that you will ever see.
