Burned by Robert Altman's READY TO WEAR? Don't let that scare you away from UNZIPPED, a flossy, crowd-pleasing documentary about haute couture. The subject is designer Isaac Mizrahi, who's about to start a new collection and is desperately casting about for inspiration. It comes in the

form of Loretta Young, radiant in a snowdrift, in 1935's CALL OF THE WILD. "Think Eskimos!" squeals the irrepressible Mizrahi, and the race against time is on. Supermodels, celebrity friends, opinionated magazine editors: Mizrahi eclipses them all with his bitchy wit and camp-inflected dedication

to the ephemeral world of fashion. The only person who steals his spotlight is his kvelling mom, who knew her son was a genius when at age five he noticed the daisies on her shoes. And oh, that climactic fashion show: it's a genuine thrill.

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
