Iris

Rated PG-13 83 minutes 2015

Documentary maker Albert Maysles (Salesman, Gimme Shelter, Grey Gardens) premiered this feature at the New York Film Festival in October 2014, only five months before his death at age 88. It's an extended puff piece on Iris Apfel, a noted interior designer who improbably became a fashion icon in her early 80s, and given her great productiveness in old age, I can see what attracted Maysles to her story. Unfortunately he provides little insight on how an artist finds inspiration in old age or about the creative process in general. Maysles simply presents lots of other designers telling Apfel how brilliant she is, their testimony interspersed with pithy accounts of her past achievements.
