Energetic, smart, fearless - great cinema, great characters. Really brings to life Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington as brilliant, dedicated, very different artists.
All it has going for it is Valentino, who *is* compelling. No cinematic courage - too entranced by its subject to get critical or explore context.
Halfway-decent story, murdered by lack of living breathing characters. Some scares. Only the bad guys are interesting, and we spend no time with them.
Beautiful, scary, sad, exciting, lovely. Fascinating and complex friendship at its heart; simple but rich overall plot. Scattered moments of intense poetry. Great resolution.
For half of this movie I had no idea what its plot was. Once it got over itself, the plot was dumb. Weird, unoriginal, undazzling.
Fun, grisly, lots of heart. And blood. Verse thing only feels gimmicky for a bit. Vibrant characters; didn’t know where it was going. Which rocked.
