This rather tedious documentary is revealing of the fashion industry but do these phony narcissists think that they look cool while having the appearance of having dressed in the dark in a thrift store?
Someone earlier posted the word “mediocre” and that expresses perfectly this documentary. It starts with Westwood expressing how much she didn’t want to do this, then shouting obscenities over her work. If the protagonist is not happy or interested, how can they expect us to be involved in this documentary. The editing and timeline were poorly done. I felt that her background story jumped back twice in time? And a better labeling and backstories of who was been interviewed would have helped.
I always have closed captions when watching British shows orBritons. The CC went directly over the small-font labels of the interviewees…..who they were was not clear. For example an Italian man with dark glasses and heavy accent was interviewed…..had no idea who he was. Some of her assistants were interviewed, but not clear if they were current or past employees. Loved the section were her husband(?) berates an assistant and the assistant turns to the camera and makes the gagging finger. That’s how I felt about most of the film. Vivianne is courageous, creative, but she also seems like a pain in the butt. Most of the ups and downs of her company are a result of her scatterbrain attitude. I am sure a lot of her employees make fun of her behind her back.
The last 15 minutes were the only clear and enjoyable parts of the documentary, where you could view the different collections with the Bolero in the background.
