After seeing Keane a long time ago, but seeing Kerrigan's debut.

The opening credits made me a little anxious… the oppressive soundtrack and the claustrophobic sounds. The effect is also quite good, although it is a bit disappointing in terms of budget. We are dealing here with Peter Winter, a man who is simply very ill and who you know from the start that there is a serious stitch loose. What also makes the film so oppressive is the fact that he is constantly teased with sounds from the past, from the victims he has made. Is it remorse? Who's to say....although, the end...

Yes, the ending was pretty good, but we've seen that schizophrenia as an effect before. It doesn't really come as a surprise anymore.

I thought that reunion with his daughter was a strong piece.

All in all, this is a great try.

Peter Greene is excellent as Peter Winter, a schizophrenic who leaves the institution where he has been treated for years. He returns to his mother in hopes of tracking down his daughter, who his mother had adopted through an adoption agency. But Peter's mental instability causes impulsive behavior (self-mutilation, explosions of violence) that makes him suspected of an unusual murder committed in the area.

Greene's phenomenal performance is enhanced by Kerrigan's inventive direction, who uses intelligent camera angles and a neurotic soundtrack to make the main character's grave confusion tangible without distracting attention from his main character. The story is complex, the film challenging, but above all intriguing. An extremely intelligent psychological drama that uniquely succeeds in making schizophrenia both insightful and tangible.

Intense film that is not an easy watch. In Clean, Shaven we follow the schizophrenic Peter, and his mental state is also reflected in the way everything is filmed. Uncomfortable transitions, shots from strange angles, and Peter who also regularly shows strange behavior. The story is otherwise not very complicated although it does have an open ending, but the storytelling makes it a lot more interesting, and in the end it's not so much about plot, but more about the psychological state of Peter and how he experiences reality. And that may not make for a cheerful film, but it is intriguing.
