House of Gucci

House of Gucci ★★★★

Not as camp or farcical as the trailers might lead you to believe. I was unsure if I'd be able to see Lady Gaga as a character rather than as Lady Gaga, but she disappeared into the role of Patrizia Reggiani completely.

I appreciated the ways the movie used its period setting without turning it into a theme park; the music cues (some of them anachronistic) were pretty great throughout. And probably not surprisingly, the costumes in this film are absolutely ace. I loved the whole film overall, a welcome and surprising treat.
