Hats Off (2008)
Critic Reviews for Hats Off
It's obviously not all because of her drive and determination, but we come away from Johnstone's film believing attitude may play a role in the theater of at least one woman's life.
If you're not tickled and stirred by the sight of her 95-pound frame kicking off sheets and leaping out of bed to answer a phone -- a gig, maybe! -- then shame on you.
Although it's highly effective at conveying the amusing aspects of its subject's quirky personality, Hats Off is less than meaningful in terms of terms of getting under her skin.
Jyll Johnstone's irresistible Hats Off documents Mimi Weddell, a Manhat tanite who, at 93, has pretty much cornered the market playing elegant, very old ladies in movies, TV, commercials and print ads.
Hats Off is a documentary tribute to the 93-year-old actress Mimi Weddell, one of those people for whom the word 'individual' seems especially apt.
Overall, Hats Off feels like a scripted documentary that avoids the full story.
