Movie review: 'Paranoia' has bells and whistles but glitches too
There are roles worth shaving your head for … I'm thinking Anne Hathaway's severely shorn locks in "Les Misérables," Ben Kingsley's meditative pate in "Gandhi," and Oscars for both. Buzzed is an easy way to say tough with real conviction — Jake Gyllenhaal's seared soldier in "Jarhead," Natalie Portman's futuristic punk in "V for Vendetta" and Charlize Theron taking it down to the roots for next year's new edition of "Mad Max." And honestly, would "The Rock" have wrestled his way to movie stardom so memorably if Dwayne Johnson hadn't gone boldly bare?
