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.
November 2, 2012
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.

It may not cut as deeply as you might have hoped but fashionistas will be fascinated.

Anchored by the vibrant Boateng, A Man's Story takes you on an enjoyable, if not tumultuous, ride.

There's much to enjoy here, even if the documentary fails to unclothe the kind of striking fashionista insights that made The September Issue so compelling.

Doc captures the superficial appeal of designer's work but offers nothing deeper.

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.

Bonicos's documentary on fashion icon Ozwald Boateng nonetheless evinces a minimal amount of interest in digging into what makes its subject tick.

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.
March 8, 2012
It's Zoolander without the laughs; a corporate video in the guise of a documentary, unfailingly delighted to let Boateng hold forth on the glory of Boateng.

Fashion fans may find 'A Man's Story' interesting, but even they may be disappointed by the lack of insight into the man and his process.

Tiresome puff piece about Ozwald Boateng that you'd actually need to be Ozwald Boateng to enjoy.

Sadly, rather than provide insight into Boateng's creative process, director Varon Bonicos is dazzled by the globetrotting, celeb-schmoozing lifestyle.
