Youth Knows No Pain
HBO is now airing a documentary film directed by Mitch McCabe, Youth Knows No Pain, which explores the anti-aging industry. McCabe herself is the daughter of a plastic surgeon, and her outlook on beauty has been greatly affected by her father’s profession. The documentary takes her on the road to meet doctors, reconstructive surgery experts, and real-American characters who have gone to great lengths to hold off the aging process. It’s a totally insightful and depressing look at our country’s obsession with injecting it’s face full of plastic and turning into yucky beauty robots- instead of simply wearing SPF and drinking water in order to age gracefully and look human.
