But is it the sort of thing where you can spot the thinly-disguised real-life figures (eg is there someone called Vonatella Dersace)?Or do you have to be really clued up on the fashion world (and therefore a waste of a good ovum) to get it?
I suspect that there were a lot of in-jokes that went over my head, and cameos by people I didn't recognise. But I enjoyed it anyway, like a kid at a panto who doesn't understand the Dame's innuendoes.
HA HA HA -- thank you. It's as I suspected. Besides, I think this movie was already made once, with Chloe Sevigny. Oh, I know, there was an eponymous book and all since then, but this is not a new story. I will, as I expected, be sticking it on my Netflix queue when it comes to DVD.Meanwhile, if you enjoy clichés, I highly recommend the latest Pirates of the Carribbean. In fact, even though it's very visually creative in its own right -- stunning art direction, amazing effects -- I don't think they left out a single swashbuckler cliché. But the very boldness of this kind of piracy just makes the movie that much more delectable. It's like a cheesecake. While one might take an interest in new flavors of cheesecake, when one wants cheesecake, dammit, one really doesn't want the chef to completely reinvent what a cheesecake is. And here nobody did. It's a very good time -- two and a half hours long and I wasn't bored once!
Meryl Streep is a national treasure, who has redeemed many a piece of otherwise lightweight fluff.too bad she doesn't get truly worthy roles very often these days.

I find it kind of surreal to have to explain that torture is bad, but we live in interesting times:
