Critic Reviews for Manolo, The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (11)

Recreations of the master's past are laughably bad: a numbing state of self-congratulatory and overly theatrical theatricality appears to have stricken all participants. So why was I never bored?

You may not be able to afford the shoes, but Michael Roberts' documentary Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards may bring you almost as much delight.

October 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Talking-head interviews interspersed with reenactments reminiscent of cheap true-crime shows are the filmic equivalent of a polo shirt and khakis: blandly acceptable but uninspired.

September 28, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

As an interview subject, Blahnik can be elusive, although his descriptions of his favorite creations throughout the years will no doubt be extracted as brand poetry for future advertising campaigns.

September 27, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The movie is extraordinary for its access to [Manolo] Blahnik, who is arch and funny and sweet beyond words.

Frothy but entertaining.
