Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Mansome (2012)

Directed by Morgan Spurlock

Starring Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Morgan Spurlock, Zach Galifianakis


Some comedy, but not enough. Some history, but not enough. If the film had taken the subject more seriously, or gone the other way and made it a big joke, it might have been a lot better.

Fanciful graphics and music are typical of Spurlock, but it’s all a bit disjointed. Some narrative structure and consistent voiceover might have tied it all together a bit more cleanly. Sometimes, interviews are not cohesive enough.

There’s a lot of truth to the basic premise. At this point in history, it’s a confusing time to be masculine.
