Love, Cecil, one of the most interesting documentaries shown at this years Telluride Film Festival, should promote to upgrade a bit of his reputation.
Director Lisa Immordino Vreeland made earlier docs just virtually fashion maven Diana Vreeland (her husbands grandmother) and art saver Peggy Guggenheim, so shes revisiting pleasing terrain here and trains an admiring but unsentimental eye on the subject of Beaton. He is probably best known for designing Oscar-winning films Gigi and My Fair Lady, and the film opens bearing in mind the dexterously-known Ascot sequence from My Fair Lady a panorama of startling black-and-white costumes in Edwardian England, totally one of the most striking musical sequences ever filmed.
The doc speedily reminds us that Beatons talents went future than his memorable costumes for time films. In a habit he was furious by his own broad-ranging interests, and he wondered if he might have been more affluent if he had concentrated going following suggestion to speaking for just one auditorium. But Beaton was too tense for that, and he succeeded as a photographer, a theater and film designer and a practiced writer in a series of published diaries. The diaries form an important share of this film; they are right of entry by Rupert Everett, who perfectly captures the imperious and funny Beaton dynamism.
