Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston Reviews

April 17, 2015
The film is poorly structured, and most of Sudler-Smith's conclusions are trite.

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.

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.

It's unfortunate that director Whitney Sudler-Smith seems to have spent more time on his own hair than his interview prep.

Lost in all this is Halston, who comes through only in dribs and drabs. If you're curious about him, skip this film.

This isn't simply the biography of an American icon, but the chronicle of a misguided filmmaker.

A ghastly vanity affair for one Whitney Smith, the son of a socialite who, despite minimal credits to his name, feels entitled to make Halston's story his own.

Abandon hope, all ye who expect insight into what made this game-changing gent tick...

All the ingredients are here for another juicy fashion insider film, but this Halston portrait is diminished by a clueless fame whore determined to wedge himself into the story.
