Dir: Albert Maysles | USA | 2014 | 80 mins
One of legendary documentarian Albert Maysles’ (Grey Gardens, Gimme Shelter) last films before his death earlier this year, Iris follows Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who’s been a constant and memorable presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. Maysles portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are her life’s sustenance, reminding us that everyday dressing, and by expansion everyday life, can be an inspiring and creative experiment – and describing the value of making your passion your career: “If you’re lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows.”
“A love letter to individualism” **** Little White Lies
