“Halston–the Documentary” (Amazon)

This is all that the Netflix mini-series isn’t: it showcases Halton’s true designing genius, his insight into how the newly liberated woman wants to dress, and it provides a much fuller picture of what Halston was really like. Archival footage of the women he dressed and of the era, extensive interviews with the real Liza Minelli, his friends and family–all add up to a truly engrossing film–sooo much better than the re-enactment Bruce and I reviewed last week. Whereas sex and drugs were the stars of the latter, the documentary’s focus is on the man and his times.
