Eleven Minutes Reviews

November 16, 2011
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 2, 2009
McCarroll is as cocky and cantankerous as he is compelling, which leads to a glut of histrionic moments, including spectacular scuffles with his publicists and his staff.

McCarroll comes off as a likable and talented guy, amazingly calm as the Big Moment arrives and the guy making his models' shoes is nowhere to be found.

Even if you've never heard of Project Runway, the battle between art and wicked compromise never goes out of style.

The dynamics of fashioning low-end fashion are amusing but a little of McCarroll goes a long way.

For general audiences, it could use a bit of, ahem, tailoring - taking in here and there.

Though this is the rare documentary that admirably admits recording "reality" on film actually shapes how people behave under the camera's gaze, I think Eleven Minutes is going to appeal mostly to hard-core fashionistas.

February 20, 2009
The filmmakers cram their slice of the fashion world with no detail overlooked, and in doing so they capture that brisk, intoxicating New York atmosphere of smart, no-nonsense professionalism.

Like its subject, whose designs were partly inspired by hot-air balloons, this documentary, by Michael Selditch and Rob Tate, sometimes seems buoyant to the point of weightlessness. It can also be fawning, but it's far from hot air.

Eleven Minutes is better when the cameras stay on McCarroll and allow him to voice his extreme ambivalence about being a reality-TV creation, and about the industry and his place within it. As ever, he plays the consummate outsider to perfection.

What is meant to be a no-holds-barred exploration of the creative process often comes across more like the tiresome Confessions of a Reality TV Darling.

Although the movie isn't without merit, it's all Jay, all the time, and that gets a little old.
