Here are three clips from Morgan Spurlock's new documentary called Mansome thanks to The Playlist. Spurlock has been busy with his Comic-Con documentary, but he also has this male grooming doc that is finished and set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Fest. The film features Jason Bateman and Will Arnett who both star and produce the film.
Here is the synopsis:
Wild chops, muttons, and handlebars are not just gamey cuts of meat or motorcycle accessories anymore. They are terms in a manscaping lexicon that celebrate hairy achievements in an age when guys seem to care more about trimming their chin curtains and waxing their backs than growing chest hair. With today's men getting just as many spa treatments as women, and with a slew of new products aiming to freshen and sculpt all manly parts, does all this newfound grooming influence the age-old question of what it means to be a man, or have dudes just finally succumbed to human hygiene?
Oscar nominee Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) and executive producers Ben Silverman, Will Arnett, and Jason Bateman present a delightfully entertaining documentary exploring the current state of mandom in America and beyond. Traveling to traditional barbershops and trend-savvy salons across the country and attending an international beard contest in Austria, Spurlock shows us the art of being a man is taken to new hilarious levels. Complete with candid interviews from Arnett, Bateman, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, and lots of everyday people, Spurlock sets out to uncover the true secrets of being "mansome."
Mansome arrives in theaters on May 18. Check out the clips and a couple of stills below and share your thoughts:
I don't think I could ever let my beard grow that long, but I have found that a nice stubble is perfect for me. I find the trend for manscaping to be rather humorous. Do you think Mansome looks like a documentary you would like to see?
