Really looking forward to the new documentary on Yves Saint Laurent, L’Amour Fou.
The NYT did a great review of the film that convinced me that L’Amour Fou is about precisely the parts of Saint Laurent’s life I am most intrigued by — his love (and collection) of art and homes and his relationship with his partner in business and life, Pierre Berge.
Previous documentaries have focused on the fashion (which is, of course, amazing), but I really became intrigued by Saint Laurent during the time of the Christie’s auction of his estate when photos of his homes and art collections began to surface, and this documentary centers around that event.
Oh, btw, the auction netted $484 MILLION. See what I mean? He had one hell of a collection.
