The House of Cardin (out Jul 23) is a concise documentary that chronicles the life of acclaimed fashion designer Pierre Cardin. It feels too much like a glowing love letter (i.e. it avoids anything too negative) but it's hard not to be wowed by his achievements across a range of art forms. Grade: B.
