A lot of famous directors begin their careers by making weird, experimental films. For instance, there’s the case of Martin Scorsese and his odd, six-minute film The Big Shave that he made in 1967. It had an alternative title, Viet ’67, because it was apparently a metaphor for the war in Vietnam, even though the entire film involves a guy shaving.

According to Slate.com, “the director conceived of the film after emerging from a ‘spell of deep depression,’ during which he apparently had trouble shaving.”

Over at Cinephilia & Beyond, they’ve posted Scorsese’s original script for the film.

In 2011, the singer Dave Hause made a music video that recreated the scenes from the film.
