The September Issue
A documentary about Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief at Vogue USA. She is said to be the model for the Meryl Streep's role in "the Devil Wears Prada".
Lots of beautiful clothes, arguments, photo shoots, and more shoes. I love it.
The job is more about managing the business and the quality, than the fashion itself, and that fascinates me.
Director, Stuart Hazeldine
Starring: Luke Mably, Adar Beck, Gemma Chan
I happened to find this at a rental store, and I loved it. The story is about 8 people from different backgrounds and ethnicity came together in one closed room to take an exam for this extremely high-paying job, about which no one really knows. The concept is like 12 Angry Men. Great mystery.
A Japanese film which came out a few years ago and was once very popular here. I finally got around to watch it, and true, it was a wonderful film.
I also watched Gran Torino (Clint Eastwood) but hmmmm, it was not my cup of tea. There is this contradiction in the film itself, that a decent man who sacrifice himself for others advertise about it. It felt so weird that some people like to make this kind of movie.
