30 hand-picked films. A new one every day
Cecil Beaton, the Oscar-winning set and costume designer of ‘My Fair Lady’ and ‘Gigi,’ emerges as a colorful and sometimes controversial personality in this comprehensive documentary.
A good introduction into Beaton's life and oeuvre. Unfortunately again one of those films with the naive approach of a "neutral documentary". No major question, no thesis. Instead there is annoying music all over every scene.
The best part is Beaton’s work. I wish they played more than one song. The personal comments were also vague and kinda empty.
A mediocre documentary. Yet “Love, Cecil” is rooted in the mind-bendingly eclectic splendor of Beaton’s photographies.
