This is an incredible doc (2 of 3 seen this year) about this guy from Iceland who, for some reason, has a Phallological museum of cock. It's basically dicks of all walks of life. Dick bones, dicks in jars, dicks in boxes, dried dicks mounted on the wall, dick wood carvings, dick cofee mugs, dick statues, etc. He has one of every kind of dick in the world on display, save one species: homo sapiens. The movie follows the strange and incredible journey as the museum curator tries to secure a specimen and complete his life's work before his health fails him and he dies. Although he's prepared to donate his own junk if he does kick the bucket, he has two other dudes on the hook: some famous Iceland adventurer guy who claims to have slept with thousands of women and a crazy American guy who has delusions of grandeur for his cock. Seriously, he wants it removed before he dies so he can sit back and watch as his rod gains world fame. He has ideas for a comic book.
The race for who will fulfill the Final Specimen is incredible both in its oddity and entertainment value. The twists and turns that take place to get one final cock in the jar amazed me. Hilarious. Plus the documentarians got incredibly lucky in being able to capture a suitable ending to the movie that really makes it fulfilling. Great movie.
