House of Gucci

I was looking forward to seeing “House of Gucci” because of the cast, director and story. The former did not disappoint. Adam Driver, Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons were very good. However Lady Gaga and Jared Leto were outstanding. Gaga is phenomenal. She carries the movie, giving a confident performance, and ends up dominating the film. Jared Leto plays a Gucci cousin who is not too swift. His makeup makes him unrecognizable and he completely submerges himself into the role. The movie itself is not quite as good as the acting. I found it choppy and a bit too long. I would have expected a smoother flow of the plot. The story, based on fact, is compelling and interesting, a true crime drama of the rich and famous. Worth seeing, but not necessarily in the theater.
