L'Amour Fou

Pierre Thoretton's doc on Yves Saint-Laurent and the posthumous sale of his extensive art collection occasionally threatens to become a sanded-edge official portrait. Yet fascinating, all-too-human complications emerge as the film delves into the soft-spoken fashion designer's frenzied, often drug-fueled existence, as well as his long-term relationship with colleague and devoted lover Pierre Berg (the film's primary interviewee, speaking in tones simultaneously transparent and evasive). Few films have as successfully brought an icon down to earth.—KU (SVA, Apr 26 at 9pm; Clearview Chelsea, Apr 27 at 3:30pm)
