Helmut Newton: The Bad and The Beautiful

As one of the great masters of photography, Newton made a name for himself exploring and elevating the female form. Through candid interviews, Grace Jones, Charlotte Rampling, Isabella Rossellini, Anna Wintour and others - including Newton’s wife June - share their thoughts on Newton’s life and legacy, and remain at the core of his work - capturing provocative, unconventional and, at times, subversive images of women. His unique and striking way of depicting women still begs the controversial question — were they subjects or objects for Newton? The film also features home movies, archival footage, and of course still photographs to create this portrait of a controversial genius.
