"Sheds a fascinating light on the creative process of an influential, but famously elusive, artist."--Rene Rodriguez, The Miami Herald

A dynamic force in portrait and fashion photography for over two decades, Bruce Weber is probably best-known for the images he provides to A&F Quarterly. But he's also a remarkably accomplished documentary filmmaker, and with Chop Suey he invites viewers into his life.

The film is centered around Peter Johnson, a hunky young wrestler transformed by Weber's photos into a homoerotic icon. Interwoven with that story are tales of other characters Weber admires, from Robert Mitchum and Diana Vreeland to such less-known figures as jazz legend Frances Faye and desert explorer Sir Wilfred Thesiger. Like the mix of ingredients suggested by the title, it's a free-form collage of images and obsessions. (98 mins.)
