  • Summary: This documentary brilliantly encompasses famed photographer/ filmmaker Bruce Weber's myriad passions and fantasies, his almost Peter Pan-like relationship to those objects of desire the rest of us experience in the glossy magazines or on Houston Street billboards. (Film Forum)

  1. Of the many remarks Weber makes in the course of his beautifully fashioned film, none may be more significant than his observation, "We photograph things we can never be."
  2. Faye's presence provides an unexpected context for the photographer's circle, where the gay and straight worlds overlap, and adds a delightful dimension to Chop Suey.
  3. 75
    Eclectic, grandly engaging documentary.
  4. Weber uses Faye as base from which to branch out in bizarre directions.
  5. 60
    Chop Suey really captivates with surfaces; look away for an instant, and the spell is broken.
  6. 50
    It's a pleasing but shallow hodgepodge.
  7. 30
    Time and again words fail Weber. He's a loquacious but unilluminating host.
