Losing my head over you.
3 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fans of avant garde film may find this interesting, and fans of Alejandro Jodorowsky will certainly want to see his first film.

Those with psychological training my see this as an example of Body Dysmorphic Disorder - an internal dissatisfaction with their appearance. Fortunately, Jodorowsky has a solution - as store where you can find a new head if you, or your loved one is repulsed by yours.

But, what is interesting is that there is always someone who wants your head when you don't like it. Luckily, our hero found that out before it was too late and regained his head and a new love.

So, don't lose your head over some woman, just keep looking until you find the one that likes your's the way it is.
