  • How can you stay mad at something so chock full of delicious detail about a man who actually lined his office walls with mirrors?

  • Unusual framing device aside, Halston is on balance a solid and affectionate tribute to an American original.

  • Some dead weight in the framing flourishes, but still an entertaining, well-researched documentary.
