Critic Reviews for Halston
Hard-partying designer Halston goes under the microscope in this hit-and-miss doc.
Tcheng treats the film like a film noir... It's a homage to the narrators in Citizen Kane and Sunset Blvd but it's unnecessary. The historical footage is good enough to sustain the story.
Directed by Frederic Tcheng, who's made a specialty of chic fashion-designer documentaries, this film celebrates Halston's work but shows more interest in the man - and the unexpected corporate drama - behind it.
How can you stay mad at something so chock full of delicious detail about a man who actually lined his office walls with mirrors?
Unusual framing device aside, Halston is on balance a solid and affectionate tribute to an American original.
