Ridley Scott’s first reviews Gucci house About the scandal in the incumbent fashion empire has divided critics. On review aggregating site Rotten Tomatoes, the movie has a 61 percent rating.
The critical consensus reads: “House of Gucci vacillates between inspired camp and gritty drama too often to achieve a sure runway prop, but Lady Gaga’s perfect performance is timeless in style.”
The film stars Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek, and Al Pacino. Reviews praise the performances, production design, and value, but say the tone is uneven and the film isn’t sure whether it should be completely cheesy or include more somber elements.
Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal wrote: “I found the film so insistently cheesy but painfully sad, its style being somewhere between the buffa opera and the soap opera, that my acute anguish state of mind may have skewed my perceptions of it. that history has to offer. “
Chris Hewitt of the Minneapolis Star Tribune wrote: “You come to the end of the movie, sometimes entertaining and more often irritated, and you wonder, ‘What were they trying to do here?'”
Danny Leigh of the Financial Times wrote: “House of Gucci is not only a bad movie, but a bad advertisement for the cinema.”
Observer’s Rex Reed was a bit more positive. He wrote: “Like it or not, watch this luxurious soap opera and you’ll know you’ve been to the movies.”
Globe and Mail’s Barry Hertz said the movie is terrible, but Scott’s intentions have to be admired, at least. “He is naked at times and disconcertingly bad, but you have to admire Scott’s energy,” she wrote.
