Background: Dutch (M/28y) - actor, director & teacher in theatre (just graduated). Cinema Visit: 11/25/21 - fully sold out and completely packed with GP. Public Reactions: many laughters

I agree with a lot of what you said. Gaga's acting is amazing. And your comments about the plot are accurate. There is so much history to squeeze in the movie, they had to pick and choose how to put i

I’ve seen a lot mock people who said theres no plot but MANY more say there was too much and should’ve been longer. im hoping the uncut/extended/directors cut version is 3 hours 

Great review! Was it just me, or was it a little weird how fashionable Patrizia was even before she became a Gucci? She dressed better than everyone else in the film even before she was wealthy. It was like she came from a fashion family herself, dressing more imaginatively than all of the Gucci family. Some of that early stuff looked tailored and it’s not like her later outfits were significantly more fashionable than her first outfits. I dunno, just found it a little weird.

Your review is fantastic, great job! 

Yes the accent veers faintly Slavic here and there. But eventually we get used to it. Also did you notice the richer Gucci family has over all a less pronounced accent than the poorer Reggiani family? Again an example of class differences. 

I agreed that Jared Leto stole the show along with Gaga, and we end up rooting for him when he finally gets his big opening and the pastel blouses with brown belts are actually not that bad!!! I felt happy for his character finally getting his flavor of Gucci seen, before the catastrophe. 

I agree it's time for mainstream Rated R film to get with the program and show us more man than what we saw, this happens again and again with mainstream sex scenes, the women always get shown fully nude while the men are almost always covered in some way or the camera skirts it. 

Whole new visuals next time I hear "L'iabiamo" now :lolga:

I have some spoiler questions since I still have not seen it. I am pissed about not seeing it yet, but I will.... Soon

 

My questions 

 

*spoilers*

 

Does it show how Patrizia found out he was killed? What was her reaction like? How did they play it? Does it show Patrizia making the decision to kill him? What was the straw that broke the camel's back? Do they have a funeral scene for him?

Why was she crying outside the school?

The scene in the trailer where they show Patrizia knocking the two things off of Salma's desk, can you all describe the scene? Why was she mad at her?

When Patrizia does disappear into the third act, what is the reason for her absence? 

Does Gaga go nude in this film?

What is the last scene? Is it in the courtroom? Do they show them sentencing her? Do they show her in jail?

Also, the "time to take out the trash" scene. What was it Patrizia discovered that she wanted Pablo and Aldo gone? Why did she feel like they were poison for Gucci?

Because they were making profits off Gucci replicas and she thought it’s cheapening the brand

Gucci themselves were making money off of replicas?

Unofficially, allowing the brand to be counterfeited to promote the idea of Gucci

Because she wanted Aldo's power, resented he allowed the counterfeit merch & purses to exist, and she felt Pablo was a drag on the entire business because his ideas weren't seen as profitable and he was bumbling and being an overdramatic buffoon at life.

!!!! SPOILER !!!!

 

 

This is the part where I wrote about Scott's lazy direction towards the end. Once the HIT was done, the story jumps to two years later. We see Patrizia in court for a brief moment, like 20secs, but that's it.

I was absurdly curious about the weeks after the kill: Was Patrizia in grief? Did she felt any guilt? How did the police found out it was her? How would she have react when they came to arrest her? So freaking many questions.

And no the runtime shouldn't have been longer, but to built your movie up to a kill of one of your main characters and not show any of the effects of it... it just isn't cool. Rush this part of the story and left the audience with that many questions was a bad decision, and there is nobody to blame but the director. Sorry not sorry.

Also no funeral or jailtime.

She was mad & sad because Maurizio didn't had the balls to show up himself so he sent his driver to bring her the divorce papers

Wait, what do you mean it jumps 2 years? Was she on the run? They don't show how she gets caught or anything?

 

What about her decision to kill him? Does it show any of that?

Does it show her getting out of jail after almost 20 years? Why did Patrizia knock those things off of Pina's desk?
