'The Gospel According to Andre'
"I don't live for fashion," says the perpetually fascinating former Vogue editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley. "I live for beauty and style. Fashion is fleeting. Style remains." Director Kate Novack lovingly and methodically traces the globe-trotting couture ambassador's life from his churchgoing upbringing in North Carolina to his fledgling career as a journalist, critic and bon vivant in 1970s New York to eventual September-Issue icon status. Talley isn't afraid to detail the countless instances of racism and homophobia he's encountered in his life – but this doc also reminds you that he's a born entertainer and can turn a phrase with the best of them. Zero dreckitude. JN
