Movie of the week: The Bling Ring (2013)

I apologize for not uploading this on time. I am really bad at scheduling.

This week's movie is "The Bling Ring".

"The Bling Ring is a 2013 American satirical black comedy crime film based on actual events. Directed, written and produced by Sofia Coppola, it features an ensemble cast including newcomers Israel Broussard, Katie Chang and Claire Julien, as well as Taissa Farmiga and Emma Watson, the movie's main marketing scheme.
The Bling Ring tells the story of a group of teenagers obsessed with fashion and celebrity that burglarize celebrities’ homes in Los Angeles. Tracking their targets’ whereabouts online, they break-in and steal their designer clothes and possessions. Reflecting on the naiveté of youth and the mistakes we all make when young, amplified by today’s culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession, we see through the members of the Bling Ring temptations that almost any teenager would feel. What starts out as teenage fun spins out of control and leaves us with a sobering view of our culture today.
Filming began in March 2012. It opened the Un Certain Regard section of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and released in the United States on June 14 (limited) and on June 21 (nationwide). It received positive reviews, with critics praising Watson's, Broussard's and Chang's performances."

My thoughts: I don't want to be negative, but I will be. The movie was bad. Very bad. I felt like I was watching the same thing over and over again. There were lots of scenes, that I was begging for them to end, because they were, basically, showing nothing. They were there just to make the movie longer. It was very weak. The only reason to watch it is Emma Watson.

I'm giving this movie a 5/10.

    Tο 90λεπτο ταξίδεμα της κάμερας από έπαυλη σε έπαυλη του Χόλιγουντ, του τόπου που μεγάλωσε δηλαδή η FFC θυγάτηρ, είναι αυτό ακριβώς, μια πλάκα, ένα αστείο, που σε καμία του στιγμή δεν αγκαλιάζει τις μαραζωμένες που δεν μπορούν να ακολουθήσουν αυτόνομα τον έκλυτο βίο των ινδαλμάτων τους, άμαθες ψυχές. Ανσάμπλ καστ χωρίς πειθώ (αόρατη η Ερμιόνη Watson, άχρωμες οι τριγύρω της Μανίνες, κακός ο μπόμπιρας ντουλαπο-γκέι), μοντάζ της κοκαινομανούς φρενίτιδας, λούπες της ίδιας και της ίδιας σκηνής, αόριστος καταλογισμός ευθυνών στο δια ταύτα, οπότε μάλλον στην επόμενη βόλτα σου Ακριβή μου Sofia, μάλλον θα πρέπει να είσαι προσεχτικότερη.

    1. Καλή δουλειά στο copy-paste :)
      Αλλά συμφωνώ απόλυτα με τον/την συγγραφέα!
