Vreeland was an extraordinary person, and I'm inspired by her life and her attitude. (She probably worked way too hard in her life, but I understand her passion for it.) But the way this documentarian captures her life just feels mailed in.Vreeland was an extraordinary person, and I'm inspired by her life and her attitude. (She probably worked way too hard in her life, but I understand her passion for it.) But the way this documentarian captures her life just feels mailed in. There's a hundred ways you can present this type of material, and I just thought much of it was cheesy. Not bad, but just not nearly as good as it could have been. The final shot?? Animated Vreeland flying away in the Lindberg plane?? Didn't work for me. The final shot should have been dramatic, stylish, iconoclastic - but not childish. The extended Jane Pauly interviews were excellent. The George Plimpton discussions? Less so. Expand
