Iris Réalisé par Albert Maysles
Maysles finds subtle grace notes that further serve to psychologise her obsession, yet there’s little sense of an unmasking, as her art and self prove so contagiously fused to the joy she finds in ‘play’.

Maysles’s film rescues Iris from this relentless exteriorisation, not by intruding on her secret thoughts but by presenting her as a performance artist whose practice is a deliberate and serious aesthetic choice rather than just a piece of batty eccentricity. Twentysomething fashionistas can ah-bless her all they like; Iris is a fully realised piece of work – as is Maysles’s portrait of her.

The film isn’t biographical in the sense of telling Iris’s life story. It’s present-tense and impressionistic – a rummage… The director’s way with framing and composition hadn’t deserted him even at this late stage – every shot is a box of delights.
