The Last Impresario explores how White may sadly be one of the last in the true definition of the term.
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.
The Last Impresario is a highlight reel of highly talented and famous people (John Cleese, Wallace Shawn, Anna Wintour) saying very nice things. This is not a bad thing on its face, but there are limits to how far it can go.
Granted full access, Otto secures face time with dozens of famouses who clearly love him. Yet such praise exposes the film's limitations, with little analysis of White's taboo-busting achievements.
Consistently entertains through its emphasis on amusing anecdotes rather than hard facts.
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.
A fitting tribute to a relatively unknown yet significant and influential player on the West End theatre scene.
This is, above all, a celebration and as such is entertaining, informative and good fun.
The tone is buoyant, upbeat, optimistic and glamorous, as, it appears, White has been all his rather fabulous life.
Warm-hearted, respectful and somewhat melancholic.
A solid, illuminating, entertaining portrait of a highly unconventional producer whose boisterously anti-establishment sensibility allowed him to thrive at a very different, very daring time in pop culture.
