Frédéric Tcheng's Sundance doc "Halston" is about an Iowa boy turned fashion icon who went from making hats for Jackie Kennedy to ruling Studio 54 to making clothes for J.C. Penney. No one in fashion had a wilder, more intoxicating ride.
This week, Tcheng and producer Roland Ballester take us seamlessly through his famous friends (from Andy Warhol to Liza Minelli to Liz Taylor) to the heights of Wall Street and to the tragedy of the AIDS epidemic. There are a million Halston movies we want to see.
We also talk about our favorite other Sundance films, from "Hail Satan!" to "I Am Mother."
