The Big Shave is a 1967 six-minute short film directed by Martin Scorsese. It is also known as Viet '67.

Peter Bernuth stars as the recipient of the title shave, repeatedly shaving away hair, then skin, in an increasingly bloody and graphic bathroom scene. Many film critics have interpreted the young man's process of self-mutilation as a metaphor for the self-destructive involvement of the United Statesmarker in the Vietnam War, prompted by the film's alternative title. The music accompanying the film is Bunny Berigan's "I Can't Get Started", recorded in 1939. The film was produced at New York University'smarker Tisch School of the Arts for a film production class called Sight & Sound Film.
