Need to Know: 5 Bruce Weber Films


By Editors

A retrospective of the legendary photographer/filmmaker's works reminds us of his lasting influence

1. LET'S GET LOST (1988)

His melancholy crooning epitomized '50s cool, but Baker had become, by the time Weber finally caught up with him after three decades of fandom, an alcoholic and a junkie, those petulantly angelic looks peeping out from behind a gaunt, volleyed and crevassed face. Weber and crew follow Baker on a year-long trek, from the West Coast, to the East Coast, to Europe – including a stop at the Cannes Film Festival – interspersed with interviews with Chet, colleagues, friends, family, and old flames.
