Review: ‘House of Gucci’ Dazzles with Lady Gaga and Adam Driver’s Chemistry and Charisma

If you saw the trailers for Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci, then you were likely anticipating a deliciously camp-filled film. While House of Gucci is certainly not Karlie Kloss misunderstanding the meaning of camp at the 2019 Met Gala, it is lacking, quite woefully, in the camp department. 

There is a sprinkling here and there for a little pizzazz, many audiences may be disappointed with the somewhat somber tone the latter half of the film takes on.

Aspects of House of Gucci are utterly sumptuous. The wardrobe, accessories, make-up, shoes, handbags, cars, and locations absolutely make this film what it is. Ridley Scott’s keen eye for scene composition comes through, creating visual feasts for the eyes.

Lady Gaga is stunning as Patrizia Reggiani. From conveying the youthful innocence of the first time they meet, to the hopeless insanity she descends into at the end. 

Lady Gaga shines, taking audiences along with her into this very dark, unrepentant place with Hayek, while Driver, Leto, and Pacino parse out the superfluousness of their family drama.
