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!!

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.

I am so glad to finally own this collection. I have long been a fan of black and white movies and photographs. Bruce Weber proves he is a master of both, as well as being a fine story teller. This movies are like valentines to us. For those who are not familiar with Chet Baker you are in for a treat, he was a beautiful and talented man, a man who could not shake his demons and long time addictions. He was an amazing musician! The tribute to him is perfection. Thank you Mr. Weber for including Frances Faye, she was a true pioneer but someone very few people know. She was a singer who was about as out and gay as you could be in the 50's and 60's. She was never the headliner but always a lounger singer who the stars came to see. Everyone from Frank Sinatra to Judy Garland were big fans. Any gay or lesbian should make it a point to check out Frances. The segment on Peter Johnson was interesting, the photography is superb. This celebrated fashion and figure photographer, whose studies of young men romping naked in the wilderness with big, happy dogs established a new category of all-American homoeroticism, has here created an eccentric, highly personal guided tour of some of his favorite people, places and things. Thank you for including us!
