Critic Reviews for Lagerfeld Confidential
In the end, Marconi's point of view makes for an ultimately frustrating, if still fascinating, 87 minutes of cinema.
Unfortunately, those without extensive previous knowledge of Lagerfeld's legendary career will find little here to enlighten them, a sad waste considering the relative lack of serious cinematic explorations into the fashion world.
Lagerfeld Confidential, while an undisciplined piece of filmmaking, offers a rare glimpse into the soul of the fashion world, with Lagerfeld, as he admits, surviving through his philosophical fixation on The New: life as the proverbial next season.
Audience Reviews for Lagerfeld Confidential
Can I sue for worst title ever? There is absolutely nothing confidential to be seen in this amateur doco that would probably have been more acceptable had it been titled Lagerfeld In Transit. A wasted opportunity as superficial as the world it attempts to depict. Recommended for die-hard Lagerfeld fans only. Zero insight but lots of car and aeroplane rides, pop a champagne and pretend you are there?
Karl Lagerfeld, master fashion couturier and current head of the
House of Chanel, is one interesting individual; a full-length documentary exploring his day-to-day activities and psychology would seem like a brilliant idea. However, after watching "Lagerfeld Confidential," I was left confused and unsatisfied, like a hungry man given a dry cracker to digest. Lagerfeld is naturally a personal man difficult to interview, but this documentary keeps everything confidential, and does little to elicit interesting tidbits from his life and secret success recipes at Chanel.
Well worth seeing, especially if you have a creative disposition. He's so creative, and so productive and successful. It's interesting to see how he works and lives. He surprised me in that he's philosophical. He has a really neat outlook on life. Think I'll buy it for my library.
