In Looker, writer/director Michael Crichton examined the allure of advertising. Plastic surgeon Dr. Larry Roberts (Albert Finney) has been performing millimeter-specific procedures on models including Cindy Fairmont (Susan Dey). When his patients start dying under suspicious circumstances, the trail leads to mogul John Reston (James Coburn). 

Model/filmmaker Marjorie Conrad and writer Heather Drain join Mike in discussing digitized images, beauty standards, subliminal messages, and mustaches. Also, Marjorie Conrad gives us the scoop about her film, Chemical Cut and its Slam Dance premiere.
