About the Film
In the age of manscaping, metrosexuals, and grooming products galore - what does it mean to be a man? Oscar nominee Morgan Spurlock and executive producers Ben Silverman, Will Arnett, and Jason Bateman present a delightfully entertaining doc featuring candid interviews from Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, and everyday people weighing in on everything from the obsession with facial hair to body dysmorphic disorder. A FilmBuff presentation.
A great documentary on men in the modern age. It's well filmed and extremely funny and entertaining. I recommend this to anyone wanting a laugh or two and a few intriguing thoughts.
What a shame!
A good concept in theory - but in practice... I was waiting for it to start getting funny but it just didn't happen! Coupled with a lack of content, I can't help thinking it could have been so much better.
What Is a Modern Man?
This documentary has been made at exactly the right time, where men are arguably as image conscious as women, if not more so. The film focuses on several different aspects of male grooming such as moustaches, beards, the body and hair, intercut with scenes of Jason Bateman and Will Arnett getting pampered at a health spa. I'm still surprised to find out that this is directed by Morgan Spurlock as he only really appears in the moustache segment whilst in his previous films he was on screen for the duration. It has its enjoyable and interesting moments such as the interview with WWE and TNA superstar Shawn Daivari, Spurlock's involvement in the Movember campaign and a feature on a guy who competes in beard competitions but lacks the charm of Spurlock's earlier work. Still, it's worth renting for anyone interested in the changing face of masculinity.
