Are you one of those people who finds it awkward watching movies about genitalia around other people? Well, then, you're in luck because Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math's acclaimed documentary The Final Member
- telling the tale of two men vying to make the first human donation to an Icelandic penis museum - hits DVD and BluRay from Drafthouse Films tomorrow.
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.
