  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: Ken Fox
    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.
  4. 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.
  5. Will best be appreciated by those already familiar with the fashion world in general and Saint Laurent in particular.
  6. Reviewed by: Mark Jenkins
    May be too much Yves Saint Laurent even for those connoisseurs who can differentiate the YSL line from Dior's or Chanel's.
