5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent!!! December 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
At last this collection of Bruce Weber films is being released in the NTSC format for all to see in the US, Canada and other Region 1 countries. My favorite film in the collection is LET'S GET LOST. This moody, almost sullen look at the life and music of Chet Baker is one of the most striking documentaries I've ever seen - certainly the best jazz film ever done! It has such a wonderfully enthralling aesthetic. Director Bruce Weber's background in still photography translates well to its cool, impressionistic, yet very lucid black and white look into a complicated soul. I really had little interest in Chet Baker before seeing LET'S GET LOST, but became a huge fan after seeing it. I went out to one of my favorite music stores and purchased literally every title of his work I could find. Baker had a very smooth (yet unsentimental), uniquely luminous west coast sound that no one has since duplicated. This film puts his music and his somewhat tragic life in a historical and artistic context that's both fascinating and heartbreaking. I saw it only once in 1988, when it was released on a very limited basis in art houses around the country and never forgot it. To my great joy it is finally available on DVD to see again and again!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, gorgeous, enigmatic, and all too human January 9, 2014
During the 1980s, Bruce Weber changed the way the world looked at photography when his images became the basis for ad campaigns used by Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Versace, and Abercrombie & Fitch. He revitalized the brilliance of black-and-white, and found a way to eroticize the human figure in revolutionary ways. Men particularly became subjects of his beauty shoots. Suddenly the world was seeing the rise of the male figure as sex symbol clad only in tight white underwear and some well-placed dirt. He pioneered an all-American homoeroticism at a time when male sexuality was taboo and dangerous, thanks to the specter of HIV and fear of gay culture.

Weber mainly is known as a photographer, but he did dabble in film with music videos and a quartet of documentaries he made on his own. Bruce Weber: The Film Collection collects the fashion photographer's feature documentary work on four discs, which provide a nice career retrospective of his notable titles.

• First up comes Broken Noses, released in 1987. Weber fixes his camera on Andy Minsker, once a Golden Gloves champion, now a coach for a teenage boxing team in Portland, Oregon. It's the perfect subject for a fashion photographer who idolizes the dichotomy of being tough and soft all at once. Andy's story is about heartbreak, abuse, not making the Olympic team, and then finally inspiring young boys to learn the sport he loves. The feature alternates between black-and-white and color, and features Weber's trademark shots of men in boxing shorts looking tough and playful for his camera.

• Next is the incredible visual essay on Chet Baker called Let's Get Lost from 1988.

5.0 out of 5 stars I bought this collection for Chop Suey Club December 31, 2013
Verified Purchase
It is great to see this documentary that captures two time periods, the 1990s, as well as the earlier times, when TV entertainment was new.
These types of movies show how things were in reality.
Plus, it was interesting to watch Peter Johnson grow up during the filming.
