Best in Show

In this doc, subtitled How One Man Changed The World With A Pair Of Scissors, we learn, through extensive interviews with the hairstyling and fashion legend, about his seven years spent in a London Jewish orphanage as a child, his time with anti-Fascist militia organization The 43 Group and, of course, the origins of his revolutionary marriage of geometry and hairstyling. Briskly paced and artfully directed, this fashion feature is truly a cut above.
