All Critics (45) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (37) | Rotten (8)

  • [Director Lisa Immordino Vreeland's] best accomplishment is having gathered so much of Beaton's work from various disciplines into one place, so the full force of his aesthetic can be appreciated.

    March 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The film version of My Fair Lady is a ceremonious bore, and the viewer has Cecil Beaton's pompously sedentary, open-casket visual compositions to blame.

    August 31, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Thorough and pleasurable - if lightweight...

    July 25, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 38 years after his death, Beaton's name is not so much on everyone's lips, and one of the pleasures of this film is to revisit his gifts beyond his best known work, the Oscar-winning production design and costumes for "My Fair Lady."

    July 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • An unavoidable shortcoming of the documentary is the absence of Beaton's peers. Somewhat making up for that is an even more dazzling lineup of period film clips and vintage photographs.

    July 19, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Love, Cecil" demonstrates how a documentary can be a magical experience.
