Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston

Critics Consensus

Its subject is fascinating, but Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston is a rambling and unfocused profile.

Critic Reviews for Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (16) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (18)

  • [It's directed by] an unknown amateur named Whitney Sudler-Smith who looks a bit like Julian Assange and seems almost surprised to be making a film at all.

  • The film is poorly structured, and most of Sudler-Smith's conclusions are trite.

  • I want to believe that Whitney Sudler-Smith, the director and camera-hogging "presenter" of Ultrasuede: In Search Of Halston, is some kind of Bruno-like parody of a fashion victim. He's too gloriously, self- importantly inept to be real, surely?

    Times (UK)
    Top Critic
  • In sartorial terms, the fabric is to die for, but helmer Whitney Sudler-Smith's docu follows a banal pattern, while the finishing lacks finesse.

    February 23, 2012
  • A self-indulgent pilgrimage to the shrine of '70s fabulousness, "Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston" assembles a fine assortment of archival material but falls far short of its stated goal.

    February 9, 2012 | Full Review…
  • It's unfortunate that director Whitney Sudler-Smith seems to have spent more time on his own hair than his interview prep.
