Sigurdur Hjartarson has devoted four decades to curating the Icelandic Phallological Museum. As its founder, he’s collected a penile specimen from every mammalian species except one—a human. With over 3 billion on earth there’s no shortage, but Hjartarson guides us on an incredible and comical journey to procure that elusive penis. As eccentric as Hjartarson’s character appears, the potential donors really raise the stakes. At 95, Icelander Páll Arason can think of no better way to enshrine his Casanova lifestyle than contributing his well-worn love gun. His stiff competition comes from Tom, a patriotic American who feels strongly that the stars and stripes should shine with his penis named Elmo. He’d even donate it while alive to ensure it’s the first. Avoiding cheap jokes and double entendres, The Final Member says much about the male psyche while attempting to answer the age old question, "Does size really matter?" Alex Rogalski, Hot Docs
