Sundance Films: The September Issue

Title: The September Issue
Director: R.J. Cutler
Potential Major Release Date: No known release date after Sundance

Summary: Director R.J. Cutler's documentary offers a rare look inside Vogue as the fashion magazine's influential editor, Anna Wintour, and creative director, Grace Coddington, produce the highly anticipated September issue. Cutler captures the demanding creative process in action for nine months, following perfectionist Wintour and stylist Coddington as they attend fashion week in Europe, endless photo shoots and intense staff meetings (NetFlix).

Thoughts: Eh. I’m already tired of this ‘fashion world’ subject. We’ve had plenty of documentaries and Hollywood films on the topic and frankly I don’t see anything new being brought to the table here. I’m sure fashion enthusiasts are excited, but then again, I doubt they’d want to watch a documentary (isn’t it the ‘peasants genre’?).
