Clean, Shaven Regissert av Lodge Kerrigan
As articulate as the film may be on a stylistic level — especially for a first-time filmmaker — it might be Greene’s performance that finally seals the film’s force. Channeling a wave of frazzled insecurity and violent confusion, Greene, in only his second screen performance, makes Peter Winter’s pain communicable to the viewer, and, in doing so, confirms Clean, Shaven as a film that hurts in an authentically unforgiving way.

Lodge Kerrigan’s approach is commendably sympathetic toward sufferers of mental illness, but his distressed portraiture is so devoid of human feeling that it depicts schizophrenia as alien, unapproachable, and ungraspable—whereas it should have depicted human feeling as something alien, unapproachable, and ungraspable, as of course it is to those inflicted with schizophrenia.

[Clean, Shaven] is unrepentantly unpleasant, a formal and thematic assault on institutional depictions of mental illness… It’s at once viscerally off-putting and emotionally and intellectually engrossing.
