4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting look into Lagerfeld's world April 14 2011
By D. Marshall TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I recently watched a batch of fashion documentaries: Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, The September Issue, and Lagerfeld Confidential. This documentary certainly held my interest. Lagerfeld is a man who has opinions and is not afraid to voice them. He is very open about his upbringing and what sounds like a brutally frank mother. The film follows him through his process of designing, through his photography sessions. We see photos of him when he is younger that are very surprising, he was as stud! I found that he came off as sharply intelligent, articulate, very in touch with the history of fashion and its influences, and a hard worker. He is brutally honest about fashion - that fashion is not 'fair', that he realizes it is a flaky, tough industry to be in, and one has to be mentally tough to be a survivor within it.
With regard to giving a credit to Nicole Kidman, I think it is a misleading. She appears a couple of times in a photo shoot, has very little to say, it would be just as relevant to give a credit to the other models that he used. On the DVD case there is no mention of her. Giving her a lead credit on Amazon looks like an attempt to cash in on her fame more than an acknowledgement that she has a major role in the documentary.

2.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTMENT! Feb. 28 2010
Format:DVD
I was expecting a lot more from this film... I found it to be more about Lagerfeld's philosophy on life than it was about his life and role as creative director for Chanel. It was very low budget, unlike "Valentino: The Last Emperor" which I would recommend over this film any day!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not much bang for the buck Dec 28 2008
By MazzanoBlue - Published on Amazon.com
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
By Collector - Published on Amazon.com
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. In short, it's a tough, creative, determined existence, resulting in an extreme accomplishment, but dead somewhere at an essential core. Another plus of the film is, that KL comes across as honest, smart, with a clear personal philosophy, a wonderful sense of humor, and a ready laugh. He'd be a fascinating guy to know, warm, fun, completely unconventional, and brutally honest. Finally, this film is a huge failure: the director just cannot even approach the fascinating reality of KL. A great opportunity missed, because KL is honest and isn't afraid to talk about himself meaningfully. But, in the last analysis, he lacks something. Something that, for instance, St. Laurent had -- as an artist and as a person -- that is of a greatly superior dimension, one that is fundamentally estranged from the person KL is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fashion Icon July 1 2008
By VideoCritic - Published on Amazon.com
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
By H. L. Billson - Published on Amazon.com
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! Feb. 13 2009
By Sonja N. Casey - Published on Amazon.com
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!
