The first reviews of Ridley Scott’s film “Gucci House” appeared on the web.
Foreign critics have already watched Ridley Scott’s new film “Gucci House”. The review embargo is valid until November 22. But journalists share their impressions of the tape in their personal microblogs. Reported by Variety.
The tape is based on real events. It tells about the relationship between the creative director of the famous brand Maurizio Gucci and his ex-wife Patricia Reggiani. In March 1995, Maurizio was shot by a hitman. Reggiani was found guilty of organizing his murder and sentenced to 26 years in prison. She spent only 18 years in prison – in 2016 she was released early for good behavior.
The head of the fashion house was played by Adam Driver, and his ex-wife Lady Gaga. Al Pacino, Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek and others also starred in the film.
Fandango and Rotten Tomatoes critic Eric Davis is delighted with the painting and has even compared it to The Godfather. “Lady Gaga is incredible, as is Jared Leto. The story is just insane! The attention to detail is amazing,” writes the columnist.
We Live Entertainment founder Scott Menzel would argue with his colleague. Gucci House is bloated and messy. It looks like two different films, which for some reason are connected. Each actor behaves as if he is filming in some other tape. The only exception is Al Pacino. He seems to be the only one who understood what was required of him, “- the journalist scolds Scott’s new project.
Entertainment Weekly author Joey Nolfi doesn’t even mention Al Pacino in his post. He liked Lady Gaga. He praises her acting and states that she has “evolved from a movie star to a powerful dramatic actress.”
Brandon Katz of the Observer called the tape tiresome. “There are too many narrative tricks piled one on top of the other. Mannered talented actors, of course, can amuse, but this is not enough to save the film from all this confusion,” the correspondent said.
House Gucci lacks energy, style and camp. The film is two and a half hours long, has an uneven tone and looks like an overly serious drama. Lady Gaga, Adam Driver and Al Pacino are good, of course, but cartoonish Jared Leto is like from a different tape. Some disappointing and mediocre project by Ridley Scott, “laments Matt Nelia, owner of Next Best Picture.
The Gucci House will be released in Russian on November 25, 2021.
