      Dmitry Samarov Chicago Reader Writer and director James Crump obviously believes Lopez is worthy of a full-length documentary, but this viewer was left unconvinced. Apr 20, 2020 Full Review Carla Meyer San Francisco Chronicle There is a remarkable person here, and Crump should get credit for reintroducing him to the spotlight, even if it takes wading through disco and banality to get to him. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 4, 2018 Full Review John DeFore Hollywood Reporter A lively but meandering doc that is more seduced by the scene than some viewers might like. Sep 13, 2018 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall James Crump assembles this documentary with lots of energy, darting through Lopez's story with a flurry of fabulous clips and images, animating his drawings and relishing the excesses of 70s style. It's a lot of fun to watch... Rated: 4/5 Oct 8, 2019 Full Review Glenn Dunks The Film Experience If Lopez's work - bold and expressive with striking use of colour and lines - wasn't enough to convince you, then the reverential talking heads would do it. Rated: B- Oct 29, 2018 Full Review Ken Eisner Georgia Straight To see the taciturn Cunningham laugh out loud at the memory of his old friend makes it more than worthwhile.

      Audience Member Cool and insightful film really enjoyed it and learned a lot from watching it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review joe m While the quote "The flame that burns twice as bright burns half as long." from Lao Tzu epitomizes the life of the 1960s/70s illustrator Antonio Lopez, it does not mean that this documentary is twice as good. Rather, the film is kind of a slog with a bunch of 'names' from the worlds of fashion, art and just plain celebrities talking about Lopez and his craft, his life and the whole crazy scene in pre-AIDS NYC. The film was just too much repetitive talking about how brilliant Lopez was. But, while his art was rather striking, it seems they're all just over-hyping Lopez and the 'glory days'. I fast forwarded though about half the film. So, let that be a warning. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I made my debut in hedonistic NYC in 1976, 18 years old, four months after awarded Prom King, which I took as validation that I belonged on the disco dance floors where the elite meet. Scouted as a lost lamb in Times Square, I was instantly a desired and profitable stripper/hustler in the Gaiety All-Male Burlesque Theater. Working with street savvy local trade, I was mentored and modeled to quickly assimilate in the Land of Oz, far from my practical sensibilities of my home of origin. At 18, I had a lot of disposable income, and I was introduced to the superior atmosphere and cache of stores on the upper east side. Fiorucci was the "in" place to go not so much to shop (aside from their gold lame jeans, most of their clothes were international military attire), it was a place to hang out, even dance to the DJ orchestrated music. Today it may not have the exclusiveness that it had in 1976, but Bloomingdale's was the place to shop. The store's shopping bags could be seen dangling from the young, rich and beautiful, which bore the line drawing illustration of the face of super model Jerry Hall as composed by fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez. I just watched the Film Movement documentary by James Crump, ï¿ 1/2~Antonio Lopez: Sex, Fashion&Disco'. Jerry Hall was given satisfying screen time (I saw her as a human Barbie doll), but not one mention was made of that famous Bloomingdale's shopping bag. Christopher Duquette Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member The enormous talent of fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez is on full display in this documentary on his work and life. However, the film just got too repetitive, as I see it, in its praise of Lopez and of his whirlwind even what many would consider decadent lifestyle. Set in the 60's and 70's, you'll recognize many a name that traveled in and out of Lopez's wild circles, as he became a noted illustrator for many of the top fashion publications of the day. His magnetic charisma would lead to a seemingly non-stop parade of relationships as well, mostly but not all same-sex, which lasted for varying degrees of time. All in all, good to see Lopez's talents brought to the fore, but the doc itself was just too whirlwind and lacking in substance for my tastes.
