"Fascinating fashion original Iris Apfel holds forth on her nine decades of life and times in Albert Maysles' rousing salute to iconoclasm. . . . A joyous celebration of creativity and razor-sharp wit sustained into old age, as evinced by outspoken nonagenarian fashion icon Iris Apfel, Iris also offers proof of Albert Maysles' continued vitality as a documentarian. Doubtless a close collaboration between filmmaker and subject, this character study proves as visually strong as it is verbally compelling." Ronnie Scheib, Variety..
