Germany | 2020 | Gero von Boehm Did Helmut Newton immortalize or objectify women in his bold, provocative, controversial pictures? This and other questions are addressed in this new portrait of the late German-born photographer who was obsessed with the female form and whose visual imagination was often beholden to Weimar Germany. Includes interviews with some of Newton's notable subjects (Grace Jones, Charlotte Rampling, Isabella Rossellini, Anna Wintour, et al.) as well as home movies, archival footage, and (natch) photographs.
