Description Respected photographer, artist and set designer, Cecil Beaton. was best known for his Academy Award-winning work, designing for such award-winning films such as Gigi (1958) and My Fair Lady (1964). The film features archive footage and interviews with various models, artists and filmmakers who worked closely with Beaton during his illustrious career. Beaton was not only a dazzling chronicler of his time, but a supreme arbiter of its tastes. From the Bright Young Things, to the front lines of World War II, and from the international belle monde and the pages of Vogue to a role as the Queen's official photographer, Beaton embodied the cultural and political schisms of the twentieth century. In this warm - though critical - portrait, which blends archival footage and photographs with voice over from Beaton's famed diaries to capture his legacy as a complex and unique creative force. Dynamic and lyrical, Love, Cecil (2017) is an examination of Beaton's singular sense of the visual, which dictated a style and set standards of creativity that continue to resonate and inspire today.

Cecil B. DeMented. He got his due in film in many ways, and we would do well to remember that, though for the very very few that are overlooked, he did not get his due on screen in the sense that he was not treated fairly in the end. The film itself, on its own, is fantastic. The narration of director Richard Lee has this sort of 'feel' to it that leaves you thinking about what you just saw, and what you can do to change things. This film would be worth it just for that. The music was excellent, as was the cinematography. In my opinion, this is the best film on any topic I've ever seen. It is a good start for a career in documentaries. It's difficult to be very critical of a film like this because so many people who are out there doing these films would never be able to make it. This is the first documentary I've ever seen that makes me want to get out and see more. Even if you don't like documentaries, you should see this film. If you're thinking about it, you should. It's one of those rare films that really touches you, because it's so honest and true to life, and it's simply amazing. So in closing, I think Cecil is one of the most fascinating films of all time. This is not a film that will be making a profit at the box office, and it will probably never be on the Academy's top ten list. But for those of us who care about the story of America and the American people, and the injustices that were done to them, and it's heroes who stand up to them, it is one of the best films I've ever seen. It's like a symphony, and I can only hope that some of you are able to see it. I don't know how much I'll ever be able to stand watching it again, but it's one of those films that I'll never forget.
