Proving again that dreams can be at LEAST as boring and stupid as real life! Welcome to a new week at The Tagline, as we are rounding out the spookiest month of the year with a movie that was certainly a horrifying experience after a fashion. That is to say, I was horrified that I was watching it, and that a 90 minute run time could feel like and unending prison sentence, which is funny considering the subject matter. Today I'm going to talk about director Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, what is described as a "satirical black comedy crime film" based on true events revolving around a group of teens who burglarized the homes of a number of celebrities including Paris Hilton (They actually robbed her half a dozen times if accounts are to be believed). The movie stars mostly unknown young actors as the members of the eponymous Bling Ring, with the exception of Emma Watson, who trades being brainy Hermione for being maybe the dumbest human being alive, Nicki (Also if you watch American Horror Story Taissa Farmiga, who was the daughter Violet in season 1, is in this movie). The cast is rounded out with cameos of people who were robbed, Leslie Mann who plays Nicki's mother, and Gavin Rossdale (the frontman for Bush) who portrays a scumbag who helps teenage robbers fence Rolex watches. The movie is shot jumping between scenes of the actual crimes and of the burgling teens being interviewed after the fact. Either way.... I wasn't especially impressed.
|Boohoo it's sad to get prosecuted for committing crimes!|
|I've had this fantasy before.|
|This is how me and my friends look. I'm the blonde.|
This movie might serve as a good baseline test for whether you are unhealthily obsessed with dumb things. If you watch this movie and it doesn't make you bored and annoyed, you should probably try to watch less reality tv and read a book or something. Not a biography of a famous person though.
|Is this American Horror Story?|
That's it for today! Join me again on Thursday when I will maybe write about another movie who knows, honestly I'm really tired and I might just sleep until next week. We'll see how it goes.
