Chop Suey

USA 2001. Dir Bruce Weber.

Chop Suey (2001) takes us on an intense personal odyssey – an obsessive journey, seen through the eyes of one of the world’s most famous fashion image-makers. Weber’s look at fashion and photography is unpredictable, startling and exciting. Part self-portrait, part documentary, the film is based on his discovery of a young male model. As a whole, it offers an autobiographical and self-reflexive mix covering Weber’s key themes: photography, filmmaking and collecting.
