Quotes

Music Industry Executive: I hate razors. Just don't cut my ears off, I'll be very happy. That doesn't offend you does it when I say "don't cut my ears off"? You don't feel, "mm-hmm mm-hmm mm-hmm, get the Son-of-a-bitch now!".

this is a remarkable vignette
17 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a short film (22mins) that I saw over 20 years ago as an opener to a feature film, and I cannot forget the impressions it made. The idea of a busy executive, already short on time, making a choice that leads to unexpected seduction into a world of extraordinary service and delight that transforms his experience of living and connects him to his humanity, and disrupts his plans and intentions was--and is to this day--powerful. I want to try to get a copy of this film. It is so worth watching. I read another persons comment that it had no plot, I don't know how the plot line can be missed, unless the viewer only has eyes for the formulaic and predictable.
