Raftman's Razor, The

USA (MIFF 2005, fiction)

Director: Keith Bearden

Raftman is an unlikely comic book hero armed only with a cutthroat razor. Adrift at sea without food, water or noticeable superpowers, his daily routine is to shave and to produce the odd philosophical thought. Two young boys who spend a summer obsessing over Raftman discover what it is to be lost at sea.
