VIDAL SASSOON: THE MOVIE (originally THE MAN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD WITH A PAIR OF SCISSORS, 2011, 95 minutes).
There are few, if any other, people whose mere name can evoke not just an era but an intimate, major portion of one's life like Vidal Sassoon. (Remember in Rosemary's Baby when Mia Farrow says Sassoon did her hair? They actually brought him in to do her hair especially for this and it's the first time anyone ever did a thing like that, devoting a special mention to Sassoon.)
When I was nothing more than a two-bit artist with a comic book style, Vidal Sassoon made me not only feel as if I could look good: he made me think I could cut hair! His famous commercials may very well be the most immediately recognizable in history because of the music and the saying: "If you don't look good, we don't look good!"
This delightful homage documentary allows Vidal to tell his own story, in his own words with that voice I have always loved almost as much as I love Bach: that rich, deep, soft, velvety and sparkly voice that defied bass or baritone. Here, we learn all about Vidal Sassoon, from his childhood in a Jewish orphanage in London to his success as a beginner hairdresser - all the way to the literal creation of new style, new fashion and of course new hair styles.
He would go on, of course, to set up Vidal Sassoon salons, schools and revolutionize even the way hair styling, products and salons were advertized. He would star on TV as many times as any great star, and hosted his own show for about 300 episodes.Read more ›
Whereas this is not a reflection of the movie, I am writing this review to let people know that Amazon isn't selling exactly what is advertised. Yes, people will be annoyed that I am giving a bad review since it doesn't reflect the content of the movie, but Amazon doesn't allow for an "Amazon's representation of this product" review, and until they do, I will leave reviews in the product category so that people will know what they are getting.
How hard is it to just put up a picture of the actual product? I couldn't even find the actual cover art for the DVD that I received anywhere online so that I could post a link to it. To be honest, the packaging seems so flimsy and so amateur, it looks like a bootleg.
