Vidal Sassoon: The Movie Reviews

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.

Classic tale of a self-made man.

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.

Beyond the love fest of talking heads is a compelling life story that courses through the Depression, World War II and swinging London, all evoked in well-curated archival footage.

Vidal Sassoon: The Movie isn't just the story of a brilliant fashion idea that swept the globe. It is a euphoric account of one man's strenuous self-invention.

A voice at the start of "Vidal Sassoon: The Movie" declares, "It's impossible to overestimate the importance of Vidal Sassoon." If so, this documentary makes the impossible look easy.

Craig Teper's obsequious documentary on the stylist who popularized geometric haircuts in the '60s is in desperate need of shaping and trimming itself.

For a film about a master of minimalism, Vidal Sassoon the Movie trades in excess.

Almost comically overconvinced of the importance of its subject, Vidal Sassoon: The Movie is nonetheless entertaining and comprehensive in its account of the man's career.
