Flashy fashion fun but not for kids

The flashy nature of the film, the fun fashion industry setting and the scandalous plot make for an entertaining film but the ridiculous and exaggerated sex scene involving the two main characters before their wedding was disappointing. We already know that Patrizia's character is cheap. That scene was not necessary to further depict just how cheap she was. The scene was also quite a stretch for Adam Driver's portrayal of the reserved and intellectual, Mauritzio. Bad choice by the director to leave that scene in the movie.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

A little bit of chaos that is difficult to look away from

A film I could not stop watching, even when it seemed kind of ridiculous...those accents...yeesh! But Lady Gaga is compelling, it's like watching a car crash and I can't look away. Driver of course is on top of a subtle and nuanced performance that almost feels too subdued, but Scott maneuvers through all of these characters well. Every one does seem to be acting in a different film and under the tutelage of a different director that may have been chaos, but Scott steers the ship well and I am still captivated by every personality. In that way this film succeeds in showing what real life has become, everyone thinking they are the star of their own private film.
