1.0 out of 5 stars Not much bang for the buck December 28, 2008
Format:DVD
This documentary was like time travelling back in time to ask DaVinci how to boil water.

The filmmaker had one on one access to Lagerfeld and followed him for an extended amount of time. It was like a fan asking a favorite star all sorts of questions for their personal benefit. The rest of us were just SOL. Lagerfeld is an icon in the fashion world and we didn't get much perspective on it. There was a throwaway line about a 30 year relationship that was ended - though there was no explanation given.

Lagerfeld spend more time talking about his night pillow than his business or achievements.

If you are a fashion fan - just rent it - just don't expect a lot of insight.

I guess the hard core "School of Parsons" folks will get more out of than the "amateur" fashion fans.

1.0 out of 5 stars a failed attempt April 14, 2009
Format:DVD
Creatively, if Karl L. is a 10, the director of this movie is a minus 0.
First, the hand-held camera work is the worst in the history of cinema (it makes your head spin and your stomach turn); the use of Baroque background music is in the style of the most banal French television documentary; 25% of the film is wasted on ocean views, sky views, city views, views through a car windshield, and there is even a long long take of an open window with no-one there (the top of KL's head bobs up once or twice; the narrator's questions to KL are usually so superficial and idiotic that even KL criticizes them on film; the narrator is clearly embarrassed by homosexuality and KL is clearly irritated by the generally bourgeois frame of mind of the interviewer (AND it is distinctly the bourgeois that KL hates above all, as witnessed during the few insightful moments of this film). KL comes off as a determined, confident, gifted guy, and with a disarming sense of humor and humanity. Ultimately, one feels, there is something in ordinary human life, and in people, that fills him with absolute dread and revulsion. This is interesting and doesn't get enough treatment, though KL is very happy to talk about it at length. One strength of the film, and probably unconscious on the part of the director, is that the world KL moves through has a great ordinariness and deadness about it: essentially unappealing decors of his homes; settings for his fashion shows that feel like a hip nightclub around closing time, when everything is dirty, tired, spent, and smelling of stale liquor. Essentially, KL's world is not glamorous, and he is honest enough to admit to it. It's an existence that has most appeal in the photograph of it, edited and digitally corrected to the max.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fashion Icon July 1, 2008
Format:DVD
As a fan of fashion, I knew that this film would give me the insight I was looking for. This documentary is the first time Karl Lagerfeld allowed a director to follow his life. It unveils the influence this legendary desginer has on the fashion world. I truly recommend this title for ALL who are fans of all things fashion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Among other things, hilarious! April 2, 2009
Format:DVD
I always suspected that KL had an interesting point of view, but I didn't realise how *down to earth* & hysterically funny he is ... clearly not of the world of us ordinary mortels with our public transport and clothing bought off the rack ... however, in this documentary two things that struck me were that 1)he is kind to *ordinary* people and 2)presents a portrait of someone who considers himself simply *one of millions* who could die anytime and be forgotten in due course. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments as he is unbelievably dry ... it's worth a watch ... & the music is good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars He is MAGNIFICENT! February 13, 2009
Format:DVD
Karl Lagerfeld is wonderful and exquisite. This DVD gives you an inside look at who this man is, where he came from, and how he works. I felt like I was able to glimpse into his life and mind for a breif time. I am in love with this man!

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding what you are looking at - is key January 24, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I understand that many are critical of Lagerfeld, and rightfully so, as he has a way with words that may either entertain or irk the inner-reccesses of your psyche. He is a genius. He is arrogant. I guess the top in most fields will have some twist to their unique character that enabling them to propel with new visions - or borrowed modified in new light.

I think that the movies, personally is entertaining. I like the strong character seeing some of the "ignorant" views from the bubble of praise he must live in - and deserves. I respect his work, I like his tongue that offends many. Others it motivates. I am in the second category.

The question, for you, is why are you viewing this. If you are interested in fashion, fashion design, or autobiography like documentaries I think this will be of interest to you. If the tilt is mainly fashion I would recommend this regardless if whether you like him or not - it is a good way to see a segment of the high-end industry and how it works for the successful, somehow. If your favourite viewing genres are more mainstream and politically correct - you may want to look elsewhere.

This gets a five from me, as it is brilliant. Even the irksome arrogance he speaks of is often lined with truth. The perspective matters. Think well - of you buy - enjoy it for what it is. It is unique.

Love Chanel, love Lagerfeld, this FRENCH movie is dull. Buy the Valentino movie and the Isaac Mizrahi movie instead.
