House of Gucci [Video Review]
One of rare breed of studio directors who effectively captures pageantry and opulence no matter the epoque the narrative is set in, social ranking, classism, self-determination and the sparring nature of fashion business are intertwined with family wealth in Ridley’s Scott‘s second feature film release of 2021. With a slither of the House of Gucci‘s lengthy runtime diverted towards the psychoanalysis of Patrizia Reggiani (a feisty Lady Gaga), a raconteur such as Marco Bellocchio’s interpretation of the tale might have been more steeped in heart is ice cold parameters instead of these glossy, high camp overtone. Starring Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Jack Huston and Salma Hayek, MGM and United Artists Releasing opened the film wide on November 24th. Here is Nicholas Bell’s review.
