well, watched the film and found it strangely compelling - mondo bizarro, 
razor as a sex object, rasoir d'etre, cheveux over in the bed, poils of 
room, fur out to sea, and there was a Leica too. Anyway, I'd recommend it. 
Aside from my recommendation, some of the composition and lighting were 
wonderful and Robert Downey - well let's just say he could have made the 
Chewbacca role his own.
