Narrative filmmaker Angelina Maccarone makes an impressive foray into documentary with this endlessly fascinating portrait of screen icon Charlotte Rampling. Focused less on Rampling’s biographical details and more on the actress’ decidedly non-conformist personality, the film is segmented into free-wheeling conversations between Rampling and various friends, including artists Peter Lindbergh, Paul Auster and poet Frederick Seidel, and offers insight into Rampling’s feelings on topics that range from aging to desire, from death to her love of photography. Clips from the British actress’ most famous films – including “The Damned”, “The Night Porter”, “Georgy Girl” and “Stardust Memories” – are interspersed throughout.
