Some things are simply too strange to be anything else but true. Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math's acclaimed documentary The Final Member
is very much one of those things.
Paris has the Louvre, London has the Tate Modern, and New York the Metropolitan Museum. But Husavik, Iceland-a diminutive village on the fringe of the Arctic Circle-boasts the world's only museum devoted exclusively to painstakingly preserved male genitalia. Founded and curated by Sigurður "Siggi" Hjartarson, the Icelandic Phallological Museum houses four decades worth of mammalian members, from a petite field mouse to the colossal sperm whale, and every "thing" in between. Lamentably, Siggi's collection lacks the holy grail of phallic phantasmagoria: a human specimen. Siggi's world changes dramatically when he receives generous offers from an elderly Icelandic Casanova and an eccentric American. However, as the competition for eternal penile preservation heats up between the two men, Siggi soon discovers that this process is more complicated than it initially appeared.
Yes, it's about a penis museum and the two men vying to donate the first human exhibit. It's bizarre and hilarious and strangely insightful and you can watch the first trailer below before the film hits theaters and VOD on April 18.
