Lady Gaga - Oscar nomination here we come!
Maybe I’ve been living in a cave, maybe I’m just oblivious to what goes on around me, but I went to the cinema with absolutely no prior knowledge of what this film was about. I didn’t know the basic plot and I certainly didn’t know the outcome, so I have no idea how accurate or otherwise this is. I don’t know, for example, whether the character played by Jared Leto was as ridiculous in real life as he was in the film. I do know that as far as I’m concerned it doesn’t matter because it was brilliantly acted and very funny. The film has everything. Comedy, drama, romance, intrigue, you name it.

I also didn’t know before I went that Lady Gaga can really act. I didn’t see her in A Star Is Born, but I might just make the effort to see her now because she was the best thing in this by far. As for Al Pacino, who it seemed to me was firmly stuck in the land of “…and he used to be so good!”, what can I say? He’s still got it!

Adam Driver, Jeremy Irons, nobody put a foot wrong and the two and a half hours flew by. I was surprised to find, after I returned home, that the reviews were so lukewarm. I don’t know what some people want from a film, but I do know what I want and this delivered it.

director: "please do your worst Italian accent" - the actors obliged
Verified purchase
The acting in this is so bad. They all speak with a slight italian accent but it's the worst kind of parody - like watching a cornetto advert or an old pizza/pasta sauce advert - if i was Italian i'd be offended. Even Al Pacino, with clear Italian heritage, could not muster an authentic Italian accent. The worst offender though is Jared Leto. I've always liked him but in this his accent and acting is absolutely awful, every word ends in an 'A' ('what you gonna do-A' / 'look at me-a'), like Borat doing a mafia b-movie.
The script is awful so the actors did not have much to work with. It's like the writer has never read a book about the art of dramatic writing. Lazy, arrogant and wasteful film.

Outstanding performance by Gaga
Verified purchase
I loved this movie. Based closely on true events the story charts the relationship between a young woman, played totally convincingly by Lady Gaga, and the heir to the house of Gucci. The film shows the high end fashion industry of the time in all its glamour and sometimes shadiness. The photography is great, the cast which also includes Robert De Niro and Jeremy Irons is fantastic, and the performance of Gaga outstanding.

One of the most fascinating and enjoyable films I have seen in some time

I Loved this film and after hearing mixed reviews didn't know what to expect. I thought Lady GaGa was amazing, so glamorous and stylish. She was full of fun and ambition until her husband turned against her. This left her devastated and unable to cope.

Hard to mess up but they did
Verified purchase
Even though the story was a bit thin on content this should have been a great movie. Unfortunately it's not. Only Adam Driver managed to make a convincing job of his role and this desire looking all the while like Yves St Laurent which was a bit off putting. Pacino seemed to be ad libbing and failing. Jeremy Irons looking more Italian than Pacino but constantly slipping into Brideshead. Lady Gaga just not an actor. On top of this they messed unnecessarily with the actual story, adding and taking away for no obvious reason and hoping that the retro soundtrack and fashion would carry it. It didn't. One of those movies that just didn't come together in the end and despite the rich ingredients available left me feeling short changed.

AN ABSORBING WATCH
Verified purchase
A strange absorbing tale of the Gucci dynasty based on real events starring Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggian and Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci supported by
screen-legends Al Pacino as Aldo Gucci and Jeremy Irons as Rodolfo Gucci..
Telling the story of how young Maurizio falls for Patrizia considered by Maurizio's
father below his sons standing.
But, the two lovers marry anyway despite Maurizio apparently being disinherited
from his father 50% share in the Gucci empire the other half controlled by Aldo
and Paolo Gucci (Jared Leto)
Before Rodolfo's death he reconciles with his son Maurizio, meaning inheritance
is restored.
Patrizia try's to muscle-in on the decisions made within the empire, which triggers
a power struggle.
The story becomes of control, greed and deception which will tear he Gucci's apart.
Well worth a viewing though in my view a little too long, however, better than some
suggest.........judge for yourselves.+

House of Poo-cci
Verified purchase
Back in the day, director Ridley Scott was the bees knees and his triumvirate zenith of 'Alien', 'Bladerunner' and 'The Duelists' was a 3-strike run that became exceptionally hard to beat. Problem is, those films were a very long time ago and the once dynamic visual stylist that enthralled a generation is now showing his apparent decline with poorly helmed movies that are neither visual or indeed, stylish. 'House of Gucci' is sadly another.

From humble beginnings she came, but Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga) had a laser focus akin to Tom Berenger in those direct to video 'Sniper' sequels when it came to men and most importantly, money. When she meets the decidedly aloof Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver) she turns him from daydreamy layabout to ruthless schemer intent on screwing over all and sundry in order to take control of his family namesake - the famous fashion brand 'Gucci'. Problem is, the scheming Patrizia isn't content with simply controlling just Maurizio - she wants the entire caboodle too and within no time at all is spiralling out of control into betrayal, revenge and in a last ditch fit of desperation, murder.

This movie could have been amazing - with the right director (think 'Carlito's Way' Brian DePalma or 'JFK' Oliver Stone) and cast. It truly could. I agree, that's a silly thing to say in hindsight - but the true story that this is derived from is incredibly compelling, but on this occasion - both Ridley Scott and his cast do their upmost to sink any form of interest from the get go. Adam Driver is usually dependable, yet here he disappears into the background without a trace and Al Pacino literally sleepwalks up to the finish line. Thankfully, co-stars Lady Gaga and Jared Leto (as Pacino's son Paolo) saw Driver on autopilot and decided to go full 'Dolmio' with a full bodied Italian accent that would make the Walls Ice Cream advert from the ‘80s seem relatively restrained in comparison. So over the top are their performances I had to check IMDB to see if this was indeed a Ridley Scott movie and not some parody from the Zucker Brothers as at times it almost felt like a forgotten sequel to 'Airplane' or 'Hot Shots!'. I'm not sure where Gaga or Leto derived their Italian accents from but if I were the BBC I would be asking for a royalty cheque to be made out to the writers of 'Allo Allo' so poor were their interpretations. To be honest, if I were Italian I may even feel a little bit offended...

All in all, it really is a wasted opportunity of 'what could have been'. The true story is a wild saga of betrayal and intrigue, yet Scott and his team treat it like a dull TV movie of the week with dour cinematography (Italy shot in hues of blue and wintery colours?), cheap production design and point and shoot direction. Even 'Dynasty' had higher elevated stakes and a bonkers sense of '80s opulence - here it all feels very ho-hum. I really wanted to like 'House of Gucci' and maybe in years to come, the film will become a weird cult classic (like a modern day 'Showgirls') where Gaga's raging Italian accent and wig will be mimicked by a gleefully giddy audience. But, that's 20 years away. As it stands, this one is a frustrating 'bad comedy' that fails to generate anything other than wild eyed disbelief and mouth gaping titters. Shame.
