News & Interviews for Vidal Sassoon: The Movie
Critic Reviews for Vidal Sassoon: The Movie
Yes, it's a feature doc about a hairdresser. And you can wipe that supercilious smirk off your face right now.
"Vidal Sassoon: The Movie" might as well be titled "Vidal Sassoon: The Infomercial" for all of the distance it maintains from its subject.
The film tells such a compelling, expansive story that its unwillingness to plumb its subject's psychological depths feels forgivable, though regrettable.
Less of a documentary than a testimonial, Craig Teper's Vidal Sassoon: The Movie offers up a carefully coiffed look into the life of the legendary hairdresser.
Audience Reviews for Vidal Sassoon: The Movie
KInd of interesting, especially to show how boring hair is nowadays, but I didn't much care fo rthe subject and his strange, elocution-trained voice. The 80's Vidal & Beverley Sassoon TV series, with white teeth & orange tan was a low point.
This is a carefully and lovingly made documentary about the iconic hairdresser and businessman.. It is surprising that no such documentary has been made in the past.
We are given glimpses into Sassoon's rise to fame and fortune from a Jewish orphanage, along with a candid look at the crumbling of his personal life in later years. We see how his personality brought him fame and fortune.
This is a sensitive work with firsthand accounts of those who shaped Sassoon's life, from childhood to today.
This film is must watching for social history buffs. Bravo!
