bert stern - posterA somewhat interesting look at photographer/adman Bert Stern, who is most famous for his pictures of Marilyn Monroe called The Last Sitting as well as revolutionizing the advertising business, by his former paramour Shannah Laumeister who seems to be too close to her subject to give us a true, in-depth portrait of the man and his vices (women, amphetamines among others) that caused him to dive from the heights of fame to relative obscurity before a subsequent revival (he did shoot those shitty Lindsay Lohan pictures in the same vein as Monroe‘s Last Sitting…gross).

Here’s the trailer:

Stern died earlier this year at the age of 83.
