A Man's Story is all i hoped for and more, after seeing R J Cutler's The September Issue, and A Man's Story back to back to indulge my fashion alter ego. Whereas Cutler's camera clumsily follows Anna Wintour and the industry's biggest names, whom are carefully shown to positively cower before her, Varon Bonicos's camera is an extension of time and space. I know its wrong to compare films as both different but with Fashion film sadly, they all seem to follow the same path ie that of a brand PR extension. The September issue is only really about Vogue and not the technically dreary woman who sees fashion as a business and "The September Issue" a brand extension , director R J Cutler is indeed a great filmmaker, and I feel that under the circumstances his creation was amazing but after seeing Varon Bonicos's A Man's Story - oddly underrated breakthrough documentary film about black UK tailor and men's guru designer Ozwald Boateng - I now retrospectively crave the reality of A Man's Story in "The September Issue" and indeed in all the fashion documentaries i have watched other than perhaps Valentino's last. In my opinion Bonicos's crafted this genius movie without upsetting Mr Boateng and really getting into the heart of Ozwald Boateng's luxury and golden pillared reality that has become his life. I look forward to Varon Bonicos's next fashion documentary, perhaps Mr Armani would make sense .RR
It is very interesting and exciting work that watches like a scripted movie, yet it is a documentary that shows insides of the industry and the life of "a man" on the example of talented British designer, Ozwald Boateng. What make it different from the other documentaries? Is that we are able to witness the ups and downs in life of Ozwald Boateng for the period of 12 years(Wow! Long time), which shows the dynamic of personal and professional journey through that period of time! Well done to director, Varon Bonicos, who was able to capture the significant moments to create this masterpiece! Must See for everyone, especially men, as it may help to look at the bigger picture of life, business, love and evaluate and prioritise things in life.
