Consensus: Lagerfeld Confidential is more vanity project than documentary, revealing little of its evasive subject.

Sylvia Rubin
San Francisco Chronicle

In the end, Marconi's point of view makes for an ultimately frustrating, if still fascinating, 87 minutes of cinema.

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.

Louis Proyect

Fascinating portrait of a decadent aristocrat with a flair for the beautiful.

A serviceable docu-tease.

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.

Engaging, frequently amusing and occasionally moving documentary about one of fashion's most fascinating figures.

[An] elegant documentary.

Comes off as something that might have been made by Lagerfeld's own army of publicists in Paris.

You learn only as much as Lagerfeld wants you to, which isn't very much at all.
