Synopsis

A feature documentary spanning 80 years of revolution in culture, as told through the life of one extraordinary man, VIDAL SASSOON THE MOVIE is the revealing story of how one man changed the world with a pair of scissors. A true rags to riches tale, the film traces Sassoon's path from a London orphanage to international success and celebrity. It follows Michael Gordon, founder of the haircare company Bumble and bumble, as he sets out to document Vidal's life in a richly visual book. Sassoon's story comes alive as the design of the book unfolds. Living through war and poverty, the seeds of his future are spawned as young Vidal becomes driven to rise above the circumstances of his birth. Spurred by his mother's dream that her son would find success as a hairdresser, Sassoon apprentices in a local salon. "I made up mind, if I was going to be in hairdressing, I wanted to change things." Through tireless hard work and commitment, he struggles to modernize the old-fashioned world of hair; with modern architecture as his inspiration, Sassoon focuses on geometric shapes and angles that literally changes the way women look, and ushers in the social revolutions of the 60's. Salons, schools and products follow all over the world, and his tag line, "if you don't look good we don't look good" becomes a defining cultural touchstone.

Weekend Estimates: Bieber and Sandler Neck-and-Neck

February 13th, 2011

Justin Bieber's popularity may not be restricted to Twitter after all.

This weekend's box office race is too close to call on Sunday morning after Justin Bieber: Never Say Never posted an impressive $30.26m opening weekend, enough to put it within striking distance of Just Go With It for top spot. The Adam Sandler/Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy is pegged at $31m by Sony Pictures, which makes it the favorite to win, but a 2% difference between the two films means that Bieber could still take the title if fans turn out in greater numbers than expected today.

Limited Releases are Pure Poetry

February 11th, 2011

For the past several weeks, the Oscars have scared off a lot of competition for art house crowds. However, this week not only do we have Oscar Shorts opening, there are several films earning award-worthy reviews. My only concern is that there are so many strong choices, some of them will fall between the cracks and won't find the audience they deserve. More...
