      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It may not illuminate much of its subject's inner life, but Halston should still prove a comfortable fit for viewers in search of an entertaining fashion documentary.

      David Stratton The Australian Meticulously researched and filled with colourful characters, Frederic Tcheng's absorbing documentary Halston will be essential viewing for anyone interested in the world of fashion. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 20, 2019 Full Review Cathy Brennan Time Out Hard-partying designer Halston goes under the microscope in this hit-and-miss doc. Rated: 3/5 Sep 20, 2019 Full Review Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald Tcheng treats the film like a film noir... It's a homage to the narrators in Citizen Kane and Sunset Blvd but it's unnecessary. The historical footage is good enough to sustain the story. Rated: 4/5 Sep 18, 2019 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse Part biography of a creative genius, part cautionary tale for artists who throw their hats in the ring with big corporations and lose everything, including the right to use their own name. Rated: 3.5/5 Jan 31, 2021 Full Review Leigh Paatsch Herald Sun (Australia) An engrossing fashion doco for those yet to have had their fill of colourful tales of high-end clothes, high-life celebrities and high-flying designers who ascended too close to the sun. Rated: 3/5 Oct 19, 2020 Full Review Susannah Gruder Hyperallergic Halston attempts to resurrect the designer's legacy by giving him a glamorous, multilayered portrait.
