This is the best film I saw at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival!
Literal translation: A Crab in the Head. This is an amazing film! It is difficult to categorize it because it has so many aspects, and it works on so many levels. But it is not difficult to praise. It is part comedy, part thriller, part drama, part romance, and part action/adventure. It will make you laugh. It leave you awestruck. It will tickle you in ways you have never been tickled before. The performance by David La Haye is mesmerizing, extraordinary, and poignant. The range in subject matter is vast in scope, as well as being satisfyingly, but curiously, odd. Refreshingly, you will not be able to erase the film's images from your mind because the visual and aural composition of the film are as fresh as they are inviting. The film even has a touch of David Lynch with its shot of crabs on naked brains. SEE THIS FILM. THEN SEE IT AGAIN. I hope you enjoy it as thoroughly as I did, but if you don't, you may want to consider another, less artful form of entertainment. Don't forget, it's a film directed by world-class cinematographer, Andre Turpin. Plus, it has two of the most beautiful women you will ever see in any film. If this is not reason enough, you must not like your life. See a therapist and try to cure yourself. Shoft Shell Man is pure delight. It is like a gourmet, ten-course meal at your favorite restaurant. It is like great sex with someone new. It... is... a crab in the head.
