It’s Episode 87! Not Another Book Podcast return one last time for Books and Rhymes choice the 2014 documentary Iris, about the 97 year old fashion icon Iris Apfel. Who is Iris and why would you make a documentary about her? Two questions that the documentary doesn’t really answer. This documentary follows Iris around as she shops for the unusual and colourful clothes and accessories she is now know for, gives speeches on fashion and style and hanging around with her adorable husband. Her fame as we know her now arrived about 2005 after an exhibition of her clothes by The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art but she achieved success with the textile company she owned with her husband prior to this.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='90'] As a documentary, Iris doesn’t really teach you much about her life or Iris behind the clothes and accessories. It merely captures on film a snapshot of her life, which feels like a wasted opportunity to learn more about this fascinating person. Iris scores more generously from our guests than from Flixwatcher and Iris scores a respectable 3.1 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Iris? What did you think?
