Doc captures the superficial appeal of designer's work but offers nothing deeper.
Showing the personal toll that produces a star in any field could be a soggy, predictable drag, but the documentary "A Man's Story" never slides into easy sentiment or bromides.
Vonicos ... misses an opportunity to make a feature-length documentary that takes the full measure of his subject's work.
The result often plays more like a satire of the fashion industry than a serious look at one of the humans inside it.
A Man's Story never gets its man.
Bonicos's documentary on fashion icon Ozwald Boateng nonetheless evinces a minimal amount of interest in digging into what makes its subject tick.
Hanging out with Ozwald Boateng for 98 minutes feels far too long as he is rarely probes about either himself or his profession, and as a result his film often resembles a drawn-out reality TV show.
An honest and well-structured documentary - truly engrossing viewing, whether you're aware of Boateng's work or not.
Ozwald Boateng may be the only designer who is more compellingly attractive than any of his models, and this less-than-deep documentary fully captures his undeniable charisma.
The doc does a major disservice to an artiste of fashion with a pretty amazing and prolific oeuvre by reducing him to a Bravo-like personality.
We learn surprisingly little about his work, his development and what shapes his collections.
It may not cut as deeply as you might have hoped but fashionistas will be fascinated.
