Sassoon, himself, is engaging in the film, but this documentary -- although interesting at times -- is too fawning of its subject, loses perspective and often wastes good opportunities.

Wonderful documentary about low-born London hair stylist turned global mogul and media star Vidal Sassoon tracks style across decades.

Almost comically overconvinced of the importance of its subject, Vidal Sassoon: The Movie is nonetheless entertaining and comprehensive in its account of the man's career.

A bright, cheery pop confection, the entertaining tale of "how one man changed the world with a pair of scissors."
