Alex van Dyk,
Prodigiously talented, Halston reigned over fashion in the 1970s and became a household name. But everything changed in the Wall Street era. With his empire under threat, Halston took the biggest gamble of his life.
Having spent my entire life working in photography and following Mapplethorpe's life throughout, I think that this film depicted his personal and professional life brilliantly. Timoner did a beautiful job depicting his life, Matt Smith was excellent as Mapplethorpe. I'm sure those that worked directly with him would agree.
Excellent film (acting, cinematography, script). I have seen this twice and enjoyed it more the second time, noticing the accuracies to his life and his relationship with Patti Smith.
Timoner, again, does justice to Mapplethorpe in showing his actual amazing artwork, whether it be his floral portraits, or his erotic images, which he was so well-known for.
I would hope Timoner does more biopics on other noted photographers or artists in general whose lives have been challenged, as she seemed to perfectly portray Robert Mapplethorpe and his life's work.
