Has anyone out there seem the documentary Lagerfeld Confidential? I would surely love to know if you have and I'm even more curious to know what you think. I caught it on the Sundance channel a weekend or 2 ago and I have to say, I could not tear myself away but also wanted to throw something through the tv so it would hit Karl L. squarely in the head. Here you have arguably one of the most important and talented people in the history of the fashion industry...someone so gifted and creative that it is simply jaw-dropping...and yet, he has to be (pardon my crassness) one of the biggest jerks on earth. I mean, every one of his pithy little remarks or retorts was so offensive or designed to be offensive that I just couldn't stand him by the end of the film. And yet, so much of what he said...really did make sense. He is so consistently difficult that it is hard to get mad. An example, he says, "I hate people who can't be alone" (which, by the way, I kind of agree with) but then says something like "I don't want to be real in other people's mind". Both are consistent with his personality (or whatever you call it) but boy, did I find him frustrating for some reason.
Well, warm and fuzzy, he definitely is not. And if that is why I don't like him...well that's just an inconsistency in me...'cause I don't like that type anyway. Now I am just rambling...if you've seen the film, let me know your impressions. If you haven't, check it out...like that proverbial train wreck you will not be able to look away.
