You Decide: Should Oliver Stone Keep the 'Stache?
As the 63rd Cannes Film Festival hits its stride this weekend, the international film culture is grappling with some of the most serious issues it has faced in decades. Money is tight, piracy is rampant, a 3-D future looms, and Oliver Stone has a mustache. It's true: Oliver Stone has a mustache. But should he?
I could really go either way. I appreciate the familiarity of that bare upper lip, the one that reminds me of the high grooming standards maintained by the greatest conspiratorially minded filmmaker this nation has ever produced. Then again, there's something kind of awesome about Ollie's 'stache -- the vision of him chasing Dennis the Menace off his lawn, for example, or embracing his ironic-showman side (check out the blue suit, too) on the film world's biggest stage.
It's a hard look to pull off in 2010, but honestly? I'd advise him to keep it. What do you think? The polls are open!
