A ten minute review of Sofia Coppola’s new film, THE BLING RING, based on the true story as covered in Vanity Fair magazine. It’s a really scary, zeitgeisty flick about young rich kids so badly parented and so obsessed with reality TV and celebrity that they aspire to live that lifestyle, even if means casually robbing celebrity houses to get the labels.
Sofia Coppola’s take on the story is straightforward and leaves us to make our own judgement about both the kids, their parents and our own complicity in turning them into pop culture phenomena. It’s a less auteur film than SOMEWHERE but is visually superb and features a great performance from Emma Watson.
