Clean, Shaven is a 1993 film directed by Lodge Kerrigan, in which Peter Winter (played by Peter Greene) is a schizophrenic man desperately trying to get his daughter back from her adoptive mother. The film tries to objectively view schizophrenia and those who are affected by it.

The film took about two years to completely finish shooting because Lodge Kerrigan, the director, was constantly running out of money. The film was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival.

Peter Winter is a young schizophrenic who is desperately trying to get his daughter back from her adoptive family. He attempts to function in a world that, for him, is filled with strange voices, electrical noise, disconcerting images, and jarringly sudden emotional shifts. He clings to his humanity like a raft, barely afloat in a sea of terror. In a brief moment of congruence, he shatters his image reflected in a window, perhaps to more properly align it with his fragmented psyche. During his quest, he runs afoul of the law and an ongoing murder investigation.

I rented this movie a few years ago, and fell in love with it. Peter Greene steps out of his normal "tough, bad guy" Hollywood roles to play a sensitive father handicapped by schizophrenia.He is recently released from a hospital and reuniting with his daughter becomes his main focus.Unfortunately, we soon learn that its hard for him to focus as sweet hope soon turns tragic. All he wants is to be a good father, something his ailment makes him incapable of. I love the way the director visualizes the schizophrenic moments. If you are looking for something off the beaten path I highly recommend it.
