Mademoiselle C chronicles Carine's launch of her new magazine "CR Fashion Book." It gives a rare inside glimpse at the inner workings not only of Roitfeld's professional world but also her personal life. It is a film about transition, letting the audience watch as Carine moves to New York, starts a new business, and prepares to become a grandmother. And of course, its filled the the models, celebrities, and eccentric personalities that make the fashion world so entertaining. (c) Cohen

September 12, 2013:Critics Consensus: Insidious: Chapter 2 is a So-So Frightfest
This week at the movies, we've got a bedeviled family (Insidious: Chapter 2, starring Patrick Wilson...
No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
There are just so many ways Carine Roitfeld can say she loves fashion in "Mademoiselle C," a somewhat interesting documentary that brings us into the inner workings of a magazine, but harps a bit too much on her ideas of fashion and style.
Unfortunately, the film doesn't show its subject's creative process as much as that of her collaborators ...
For fashion junkies, Mademoiselle C will be like five September issues of Vogue all rolled into one.
As a distinctly not-insider ... I would have benefited more from a broader portrait of the woman herself, and how she became such a legend.
As vanity projects go, this one's unusually well-made - as any portrait of an iconic stylist ought to be.
Roitfeld seems constantly inspired by the prospect of pushing boundaries and expectations, and that, in turn, is inspiring to watch.
...hard to follow, relatively incoherent,...she is shown as a peripatetic presence, with seeming indefatigable energy. But she talks so much during the first hour that it becomes enormously annoying...
A lively but exasperatingly incurious and obsequious work about Carine Roitfeld, the former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief who quit the Condé Nast empire in 2011 to start her own publication called CR Fashion Book.
It's a film which treats its audience like beggars wallowing in the gutter.
High in gloss if not necessary insight, this is manna for fashion fans but a marginally slighter piece of work than The September Issue.
Fabien Constant's doc about ultimate fashionista Carine Roitfeld will be catnip to the style-obsessed, while definitely showing that a lot of hard work goes into those all glossy images one carelessly flips through.
It's to Carine Roitfeld's own credit and director Fabien Constant's funky and frenetic pacing that the doc feels neither like a corporate hagiography nor like mere fashionista masturbation material.
