  • Early inertia gives way to a revealing and enthralling portrait of the actress.

  • Her chattiness here is unexpected and disarming, and if the film's overindulgent, it puts you in a forgiving mood. How often do we get to hear a lioness speak?

  • A unique documentary portrait of one of cinema's most quietly enduring talents.

    December 15, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • "Charlotte Rampling: The Look" emerges as a free-floating, intriguing portrait of the artist as a 60-something woman, filled with quotable tidbits.

    December 8, 2011 | Rating: 3/4
  • How can you not admire an actress who'd share top billing with a simian?

    November 4, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Ms. Rampling is presented as an endlessly watchable mystery, an aloof but affable sphinx. But we knew that already.

Audience Reviews for The Look

  • Nov 08, 2013
    So while there are certainly worse ways to spend one's time than listening to Charlotte Rampling talk about her obsessions and her past movie roles(the clips being split between two ages, young and mature), it is sad to report "The Look," a documentary self-portrait, contains much more rambling than any actual insights, as she reports humbly that she was only originally cast in movies due to her beauty. Of course, considering the length of her career, talent must have and did have something to do with it, plus the way she chooses roles, aiming for the controversial ones.(Indirectly, this makes a case for actors being responsible for the movies they appear in.) One of the most is "The Night Porter" which this documentary finally answers my question as to what were they thinking, with it being an early film about the Holocaust, long before it had been commodified. And as far as "The Verdict" goes, I think Rampling was cast so David Mamet would have someone to work his unpleasant issues about women on.
