I just saw this at the Toronto Hot Docs cinema. If you like colours, this movie is for you. I wasn't familiar with Bert Stern, but now that I have seen this movie about his work I can see how unique he was. The contrast between magazine covers from the early 60s to his vision is astounding. The pyramid shot is brilliant. The film flows more or less in a time linear fashion. Bert explains his feelings for the various pictures as we go along. His explanations are short and succinct, you can sort of feel instinctively that he is a visual person and he works out every detail of a shot in his mind, then it all comes together without explanation. I thought the Marilyn Monroe shots with the orange markings were very interesting.
