Critic Reviews

  1. 80
    This is a tender and engaging portrait of a marvelously elusive personality, whose style remains timeless.
  2. 75
    There are family photos, interviews with colleagues, newsreels of early shows, a chat with his mother and vintage interviews with an unbelievably young and sexy YSL.
  3. Reviewed by: Lisa Nesselson
    Companion piece to Teboul's "Yves Saint Laurent -- Time Regained" nicely complements that excellent film but is less riveting as a free-standing experience.
  4. Engrossing and illuminating.
  5. 60
    Except for the access the director, David Teboul, had to Mr. Saint Laurent's inner circle, "Times" wouldn't be out of place on A&E.
  6. Will best be appreciated by those already familiar with the fashion world in general and Saint Laurent in particular.
  7. 60
    While the film captures all the beauty of these extraordinary pieces, the details of Saint Laurent's legendarily turbulent personal life are glossed over with frustrating tact.
  8. So unfocused we never get to know the man behind the gowns.
  9. 30
    May be too much Yves Saint Laurent even for those connoisseurs who can differentiate the YSL line from Dior's or Chanel's.
