Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In the end, Marconi's point of view makes for an ultimately frustrating, if still fascinating, 87 minutes of cinema."
‑ Sylvia Rubin, San Francisco Chronicle
"Unfortunately, those without extensive previous knowledge of Lagerfeld's legendary career will find little here to enlighten them, a sad waste considering the relative lack of serious cinematic explorations into the fashion world."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Fascinating portrait of a decadent aristocrat with a flair for the beautiful."
‑ Louis Proyect, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Lagerfeld embodies the high fashion life - his every move would provide enough material to fill The Devil Wears Prada ten times over, but our view is dulled by Marconi's bland questioning."
‑ Carrie Gorringe, thelondonpaper
"We don't learn a lot from Rodolphe Marconi's up-close but annoyingly impersonal documentary, which devotes pointless minutes to KL dozing on planes, and snootily considers his importance a given."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"A serviceable docu-tease."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Lagerfeld Confidential, while an undisciplined piece of filmmaking, offers a rare glimpse into the soul of the fashion world, with Lagerfeld, as he admits, surviving through his philosophical fixation on The New: life as the proverbial next season."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Engaging, frequently amusing and occasionally moving documentary about one of fashion's most fascinating figures."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Even by the unexacting standards of fashionista portraiture, this is a feeble effort."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
"Know not to take tips from a man who has a ponytail and wears fingerless black gloves."
‑ , Sun Online
"[An] elegant documentary."
‑ , Los Angeles Times
"Comes off as something that might have been made by Lagerfeld's own army of publicists in Paris."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"You learn only as much as Lagerfeld wants you to, which isn't very much at all."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Talkative and witty as he is, Chanel bigwig Karl Lagerfeld is a stubbornly private man."
‑ Karl French, Financial Times
"Lagerfeld's mannerisms and stage-props are a kind of armour which make intimacy impossible."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
