A small, insightful feature with a deceptively thoughtful thesis, Iris adds a bittersweet postscript to director Albert Maysles' filmography.

Maysles often said that he made [his films] with a sense of love for his subjects. That is certainly true of this film, which is a great parting gift to us all.
It's an affectionate, slight, minor work.
This woman has plenty of blunt wisdom to share.
'Iris" is a joyful look at an aging eccentric and an examination of the playful nature of design and fashion; it likely won't change your life, but will bring a smile to your face.
A flurry of excitement greets her wherever she goes; throughout the adulation, she is appreciative, patiently bemused, a little cranky and only occasionally tickled.
Iris is an absolute kick, whether or not you care a whit about the world this character is moving through. And she is a character, with her big round glasses and her big opinions.
[Albert] Maysles, doesn't just coast on his reputation in Iris: he brings a perspective a younger filmmaker probably could not.
Behind those iconic bottle-rimmed glasses is a woman who has lived life to the fullest, and serves as an inspiration to everyone who watches the film.
In some respects, "Iris" seems remarkably modern for the work of an 88-year-old filmmaker. It finds common ground with "Actress" in suggesting that we - especially the 51 percent of us who happen to be female - are constantly performing.
This is not a film about big people or grand issues. It is delicately, oddly, insistently trivial.
Much of the fun is getting a behind-the-scenes look at how fashion icon Iris Apfel constructs an outfit. And then, maybe, following er lead. (That necklace that was too big, too bright, too gaudy may seem just right. Especially if you add another.)
[Iris] is, in other words, a love letter from one artist to another.
A real tribute to an amazing woman. Worth seeing for fans of fashion and fans of really endearing people in general.
The once glorious and beloved Maysles brothers made some of the best documentaries of all time, including "Grey Gardens" and "Gimme Shelter." The Maysles (pronounced like hazels) have a legacy that has remained consistent in the past twenty years, even with the death of David in 1987. Albert Maysles passed just this past March, and his last film is a testament to the Maysles constant of capturing crazy interesting figures in their prime.
