IRIS

Pasatiempo - - MOVING IMAGES -

Less is def­i­nitely not more if you’re Iris Apfel — the fo­cus of this slight, mostly light­hearted doc­u­men­tary from one of the mas­ters of the genre, Al­bert Maysles. Apfel is a self-de­scribed “geri­atric star­let” (she’s nine­tythree) and a cham­pion of wildly col­or­ful out­fits and over­sized ac­ces­sories. Af­ter a highly suc­cess­ful ca­reer in in­te­rior de­sign (she helped more than one first lady re­dec­o­rate the White House), she has set­tled into a new role as a fash­ion icon and de­signer’s muse. It’s a plea­sure to spend 80-some­thing min­utes lis­ten­ing to her thoughts on ev­ery­thing from per­sonal style to ag­ing, and while she doesn’t dis­pense fi­nan­cial ad­vice, when Iris Apfel talks, peo­ple should lis­ten. Rated PG-13. 83 min­utes. The Screen. (Lau­rel Glad­den)
