June 25th, Movie 26
House of Gucci was one of the films that I did not get to in the theater, that was nominated for Oscars but one that I planned on doing during the June Swoon.
I have now watched House of Gucci, and I have to say that I did not get into it at all. I found it uninteresting and dull and I just could not get into it.
There are some positive things. I did like the soundtrack. There were some great songs included. Both Lady Gaga and Adam Driver play their characters well and deserved the praise that they received.
There was an impressive cast of actors in the film including such notables as Al Pacino, Selma Hayek, Jeremey Irons, Jack Huston, Camille Cottin and Florence Andrews.
Jared Leto is here too, but the less spoken about his performance, the better.
I thought it was too long and meandered through Lady Gaga and Adam Driver’s relationship.
It was just not a movie for me.
Agree- it was pretty pointless to me, other than giving some star actors more money. Its bad when a films ends and i wonder ‘well, what was the point of that?’ Not Ridley’s finest hour. 1979’s Alien and 1982’s Blade Runner were long ago.
The Martian was pretty good [and a “laugh riot”. ]
