The Last Impresario review

The life and times of Michael White

Stage and screen producer Michael White revolutionised British culture, thanks to his gambles on outré hits like The Rocky Horror Picture Show . But at night, he became the celebrity’s celebrity. Gracie Otto’s doc follows happily in the slipstream of White’s career, wowed by his status as the gatekeeper of cool.

Granted full access, Otto secures face time with dozens of famouses who clearly love him. Yet such praise exposes the film’s limitations, with little analysis of White’s taboo-busting achievements. Entertaining though the gossip is, you probably had to be there.
