A little scattered and rambling - but it's honest ...
12 September 2009 | by Vic_maxSee all my reviews

It's a bit funny: if you ask people who use cosmetics/drugs/surgery to postpone visible aging why they do it ... many can rattle off a pretty good sounding reason. But - if they keep talking (like they do in this documentary), you can hear their insecurities come out.

I appreciated this honesty. That's what made this documentary different than others - it's not about showing crazy people and disastrous results. It's about showing average people who want to retain some youthfulness as they age - nothing wrong with that. It's a little sad that our society is always asking "why do it" when deep down most of us completely understand.

The interviews are mixed in with comments from manufacturer CEOs talking about their products as well as the author's own personal reminisces regarding her father (a successful plastic surgeon). We also get to follow the author as she begins stepping up her own efforts to reverse the clock.

While the film's structure is a little rambling, it's the people's bumbling honesty that makes the show interesting. It's worth a watch if you're interested in this topic.
