Clean, Shaven, a film by Lodge Kerrigan is considered by some psychiatrists to be the best portryal of untreated schizophrenia ever presented on film.

The director of the film states: "I really tried to examine the subjective reality of someone who suffered from
schizophrenia, to try to put the audience in that position to experience how I imagined the symptoms to be: auditory hallucinations, heightened paranoia, dissociative feelings, anxiety."

The main character believes that there is a radio in his head and a transmitter under his fingernail. In this scene he removes the transmitter.
