Movie Info

A portrait of Michael White, the enfant terrible of London's theatre-land in the 70's, the man responsible for introducing Yoko Ono, Merce Cunningham and Pina Bausch to the international audiences. He challenged censorship with his hit erotic revue Oh! Calcutta!, struck gold with The Rocky Horror Picture Show and A Corus Line and produced Monty Python and the Holy Grail, My Dinner with Andre, and John Waters' Polyester. Fifty of his closest friends (including Yoko Ono, Kate Moss, Anna Wintour, John Waters and John Cleese) introduce us to one of life's true originals.

  • The Last Impresario explores how White may sadly be one of the last in the true definition of the term.

  • White makes for a glittering prism through which to view a certain generation of bohemian excess and creativity.

  • White now is in pretty bad shape and doesn't really possess the mental or physical capacity to engage in long conversations about his life and times.

  • White is the 'most famous man you've never heard of' says actress Greta Scacchi, who joins the stars - most of them women - paying tribute in this doc.

  • What emerges is an affectionate, slightly melancholy evocation of a life - incomplete, but engaging.

  • There's a certain suspicion about hieroglyphic documentary portraits of individuals of a generational span, but The Last Impresario constantly surprises both by what it is and what it's not.
