Let’s Hear it For The Long-Awaited Film, House of Gucci
Have you watched the House of Gucci yet?
The movie has got to be one of the most anticipated ones of 2021 – but the real question is, did it prove to be worth the hype?
Well, you are about to find out! But first, let’s do a recap about why this movie was receiving so much hype to the point that social media pages were specially created to provide real-time updates on the filming, set, wardrobe, and everything in between.
A Famous Start
First off, when the movie was announced, it was revealed that the leading cast members would be Lady Gaga, Jared Leto, Adam Driver, and Salma Hayek. These people happen to be some of the biggest names in Hollywood, so it was natural to assume that this film was going to be good.
The movie also gained attention because when Gaga was in Italy filming the movies, news broke out of her dogs’ kidnapping in which their walker had also been shot. This incident, however unfortunate and traumatizing, led to a lot of media coverage on the whole case and, consequently, the movie.
Hear It From the Real Guccis
Now on to the main reason why you’re probably reading this article – how are the reviews?
Well, let’s just say that from what the reviews are indicating, the movie did not impress, especially when it comes to the people that it was based on. The movie was based on the real-life story of the Gucci family which included Maurizio Gucci and his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani who had played a significant part in his murder in 1995. However, it was branded ‘painful and insulting’. The heirs of Aldo Gucci did not hold back, stating that the movie was ‘extremely painful’ and ‘an insult to the legacy that the brand has been built on’.
Rejected by the Fashion World
What’s more, is that they are not the only ones who happen to be upset about the movie. Another fashion designer that the movie let down was none other than Tom Ford who had worked as the creative director of Gucci from 1994 to 2004. It was reported that the designer did not hold back and cackled loudly during the screening of the House of Gucci.
While he was upset and disappointed in the film, he states that it did manage to promote the brand – and he was right indeed; the brand search has gone up by 73%.
Critics even went ahead to call this a marketing gimmick for the brand itself. Yikes!
