Hard-partying designer Halston goes under the microscope in this hit-and-miss doc.

September 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.

September 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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?

June 14, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Unusual framing device aside, Halston is on balance a solid and affectionate tribute to an American original.

June 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Some dead weight in the framing flourishes, but still an entertaining, well-researched documentary.
