Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ documentary About Face: Supermodels Then and Now debuted Monday night on HBO. The Hollywood Reporter called it “a model-centric documentary that doesn't spend enough time on its best features.” Focusing on interviews with countless models such as Christy Turlington and Isabella Rossellini as well as Calvin Klein, the documentary discusses controversial topics in the modeling industry such as aging and plastic surgery. “It is in those honest, even if conflicting, moments that About Face finally feels intimate,” THR's Allison Keene writes. The New York Times agrees and says, “These women are far more interesting when reflecting on the culture of beauty and talking about what they’re doing and feeling today.”
