Many people remember some of Diana Vreeland's famous pronouncements ("I adore pink! It is the navy blue of India!") but few remember actually hearing her speak. The documentary Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel takes care of that.
In an age where documentaries are becoming the place to go for those interested in investing their time & money in the company of thoughtful and watchable subjects, The Eye Has to Travel is yet another welcome addition to that list.
...more of an energetic and affectionate sketch than a revealing portrait of this oversized personality, but one has to wonder if the woman who celebrated glittering surfaces would have wanted it any other way.
Featuring a large number of contributors including her children, former colleagues and well known faces like photographer David Bailey, Vreeland's story is brought to life through a rich collection of archive images and footage.
