Producer Chris Marino has taken years to create Comb-Over: The Movie and is excited to reveal the secret world of comb- overs when the film premieres on The Sundance Channel on April 16.
Marino admits hes been obsessed with comb-overs ever since he was a kid and saw a man with a brilliant comb- over at the gym.
Since then, Marino has been fascinated with the level of denial among balding men who comb their thinning locks over their shiny bald spot.
Says Marino: While I was filming the documentary I got everything from I dont have a comb-over! to Get the fþþþ away from me. It was total denial of something everyone could see.
To get folks with comb-over anxiety to chat with him on camera, Marino would ask, Can I talk to you about your choice of hairstyle? but admits the slick line didnt work every time.
He adds, The resistance was incredible. I mean its just a hairstyle. I even got punched in the face once just for filming footage of a guys head, but I had to do it because his comb-over was amazing!
