An effusive, sad, visually gorgeous, and illuminating portrait of the artist.
It's a documentary that's filled with beautiful images but nonetheless feels unfocused.
If someone is that bored with their own life, it's not clear why we should bother listening in, no matter what they've accomplished.
While Bert Stern: Original Madman mines its subject's work for a steady stream of striking visuals, his self-narration proves to be of little interest, offering little variation on a single theme: his love/lust for women.
An unappealing jumble of sex, regret and hero worship, "Bert Stern" is an odd tribute to brilliance muffled by lust.
Despite its admittedly intriguing parts, the film ultimately feels too diffuse and self-indulgent to represent a truly incisive portrait of its subject.
The latest in a long parade of limp couture-chronicle documentaries.
Nobody is easier on Bert Stern than the filmmaker, four decades his junior, and his long-time squeeze.
Feels as though it's all Laumeister could squeeze out of artist before he tired of her company. Although erratic, the picture maintains a basic understanding of Stern's peculiarities and urges.
Real life Mad Man would make Don Draper jealous.
Needs someone tougher to ask questions.
"Mad Man" presents a tantalizing overview of Stern's work as a photographer, confidently placing him among the greats in his field. But Stern as a person? Not so great.
