Not for the squeamish...

...but if you can stomach the 75 minutes, you'll be glad you did!! (I saw this at SXSW and some guy in the audience actually fainted!) The Lizard rocks!! "The Backyard" will leave you inspired -- dreams really do come true if you put your heart & soul into making them happen -- but you may need a downer from the adrenaline rush!
