In the end, Marconi's point of view makes for an ultimately frustrating, if still fascinating, 87 minutes of cinema.

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.

Lagerfeld keeps the shades down and the collar up in this glossy but inexpressive biography.

Lagerfeld could be the fashion world's Nosferatu: gimlet eyes hidden behind shades as they appraise each new collection; monstrous in his egotism; and, despite his protestations otherwise, painfully lonely after selling his soul to haute couture.

Apart from a few too many longueurs of Lagerfeld shooting pretty pictures of pretty models, [the film] is an entertaining bauble.
October 24, 2007
An engaging portrait of a man who claims to eschew self-analysis and nostalgia, even as these are clearly his stock in trade.

Marconi colludes like an awestruck fan, letting the witty eccentric hold court with childhood anecdotes and quotable gems. Not that we're complaining - after all, who needs reality when the illusion's sweeter than Chanel?

The designer's droll wit makes this a compelling (if bitchy) documentary.

"I'm a complete improvisation," Lagerfeld declares. And it's quite a performance.

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.

Comes off as something that might have been made by Lagerfeld's own army of publicists in Paris.

I learned a lot about Lagerfeld but nothing I felt an urgent need to know.

You learn only as much as Lagerfeld wants you to, which isn't very much at all.

Lagerfeld embodies the high fashion life - his every move would provide enough material to fill The Devil Wears Prada ten times over, but our view is dulled by Marconi's bland questioning.
