  • First gaining fame for his vivid photos of New York City streets, William Klein had a lesser-known but equally brilliant career as a filmmaker in France. Inventive and insightful, Klein's absurdist satires are as scathing as they are hilarious. Setting its sights on American foreign policy, MR. FREEDOM tells the story of a jingoistic, ultra-American superhero who travels to France to halt a Communist invasion (from Switzerland, no less). The pseudo-documentary WHO ARE YOU POLLY MAGGOO? presents a wicked spoof of the Paris fashion world. THE MODEL COUPLE follows a husband and wife as they undergo a six-month government experiment in which they will live in an apartment, equipped with all the modern amenities, under nonstop surveillance.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[With] kaleidoscopic imagery, myriad filterings of perception and multi-tiered storytelling....The movies of American expatriate William Klein confirm that an eye for design can be as important to a film as all the money in the world..."
    Sight and Sound

    "His three fiction films are unabashedly caustic satires of a society that's been eclipsed by its own mass-mediated self-image."
