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 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.

Top Critic

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.

November 30, 2014 | Full Review…

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.

September 28, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Consistently entertains through its emphasis on amusing anecdotes rather than hard facts.

September 26, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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