In the end, Marconi's point of view makes for an ultimately frustrating, if still fascinating, 87 minutes of cinema.

Unfortunately, those without extensive previous knowledge of Lagerfeld's legendary career will find little here to enlighten them, a sad waste considering the relative lack of serious cinematic explorations into the fashion world.

Lagerfeld Confidential, while an undisciplined piece of filmmaking, offers a rare glimpse into the soul of the fashion world, with Lagerfeld, as he admits, surviving through his philosophical fixation on The New: life as the proverbial next season.

Comes off as something that might have been made by Lagerfeld's own army of publicists in Paris.

Fascinating portrait of a decadent aristocrat with a flair for the beautiful.

Engaging, frequently amusing and occasionally moving documentary about one of fashion's most fascinating figures.

You learn only as much as Lagerfeld wants you to, which isn't very much at all.

Lagerfeld embodies the high fashion life - his every move would provide enough material to fill The Devil Wears Prada ten times over, but our view is dulled by Marconi's bland questioning.

Even by the unexacting standards of fashionista portraiture, this is a feeble effort.

Talkative and witty as he is, Chanel bigwig Karl Lagerfeld is a stubbornly private man.

We don't learn a lot from Rodolphe Marconi's up-close but annoyingly impersonal documentary, which devotes pointless minutes to KL dozing on planes, and snootily considers his importance a given.

Know not to take tips from a man who has a ponytail and wears fingerless black gloves.

Lagerfeld's mannerisms and stage-props are a kind of armour which make intimacy impossible.

If you're one of those devils who wears Prada, seek it out. If your jeans don't come with designer labels, you're advised to look elsewhere.

Anyone hoping for a deeper insight into the fashion designer than his weakness for the construction industry should probably look somewhere other than the insubstantial documentary Lagerfeld Confidential.

Lagerfeld keeps the shades down and the collar up in this glossy but inexpressive biography.
