Al Pacino’s Wigs in the ‘Phil Spector’ HBO Movie Are a Sight to Behold

You want commentary? Sure. Next month, HBO will release Phil Spector, which chronicles the murder trial against legendary record producer Phil Spector that concluded with his 2009 sentencing for a very long time. Today, HBO released a trailer showing Al Pacino (as Spector) and Helen Mirren (as his lawyer) chewing on all kinds of dramatic scenery, but the most notable thing is the assortment of truly garish wigs on top of Pacino’s head—which, along with the hammy delivery, make it seem like the movie could find its place in the pantheon of ironically watched movies for years to come. Or maybe it’ll actually be good, but really: Those wigs! It’s out on March 24. As follows:
