Part short film, part amusement park ride
7 July 2004 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

This short film is shot entirely in first person perspective and it makes you, the viewer, feel as if the events that are occurring, are occurring to you.

What starts as a haircut quickly escalates and becomes an exercise in forced intimacy and domination. If Disney ever does a gay theme park, this film could be the S&M equivalent to Pirates of the Caribbean.

You feel as if you are there and a participant. And if you've ever been curious about BDSM, this may be the least threatening way ever to experience it a bit.

This well crafted short should start with a variant on that old 50's sci-fi warning... "Do not try to adjust your set. For the next 8 minutes the film maker will be in control"

Bravo to the film maker for a thoroughly interesting, genuinely unique short film that I will never forget. At one point I was reminded of Andy Warhol's Blow-Job but in the next instant I was thinking... "Andy Warhol would have LOVED this film"

See it for yourself and expand your horizons a bit. But be warned, this film is NOT for children.
