ARMLESS tells the story of a man who suffers from Body Integrity Identity Disorder (B.I.I.D.), a real-life psychological condition in which an individual paradoxically doesn't feel “whole” unless he loses one or more major limbs. When he leaves his wife and goes to find a doctor willing to amputate his arms, it triggers a twisted romp filled with mistaken identities, missed chances and tragic consequences. Unlike many pop culture treatments of B.I.I.D., which aim to shock, ARMLESS explores the metaphorical resonance of this psychological condition as a symbol for the secrets that all of us have. It is a quirkily funny, strangely poignant story about love, lies, marriage and amputation.

Fascinating, in light of BIID being a true psychological condition. I had no idea it existed. Well done movie, especially Daniel London's portrayal.
Hilariously poignant. A rather cohesive film that -- while not perfect -- feels complete. Great acting. Fun cinematography. Lovely soundtrack.
