The late Kevyn Aucoin arguably still stands as the highest-profile makeup artist of all time. One of the few makeup artists to become a celebrity in his own right, Aucoin was the sort of invaluable corner man whom models and stars insisted accompany them on shoots and shows all over the world. With an abundance of gratifying historical context and humane detail, “Larger Than Life” traces Aucoin’s story from his early years as a gangly, effeminate kid from small-town Louisiana to his days as an international fashion star.

A lyrical portrait of American artist James Surls, best known for his massive wooden and metal sculptures, “The House the Hand and the Hatchet” opens a window on Surls’ worldview and artistic process as the venerable sculptor settles into his 70s and looks back on his career. The past — particularly his early life with his wife and young daughters in the woodlands of East Texas — deeply informs his work, and that history is periodically referenced through archival video footage and old news clips.
