Tom Ford has some thoughts on “House of Gucci” and we’re not sure what to make of them

Tom Ford has written a review of House of Gucci for Airmail and we’re not sure whether he loved the film or hated it. Maybe a little bit of both?

The famed fashion designer, who worked alongside Maurizio Gucci for four years and personally knew many of the people depicted in the film, kicks off his review by writing, “I recently survived a screening of the two-hour-and-37-minute film that is House of Gucci.

From there, Ford does a deep dive into picture, which he says “rivals the nighttime soap Dynasty for subtlety but does so with a much bigger budget” and often left him wondering if “I wasn’t watching a Saturday Night Live version of the tale.”

Here are a few highlights from the rest of his review…

On his initial reaction upon leaving the theater:

The film is … well, I’m still not quite sure what it is exactly, but somehow I felt as though I had lived through a hurricane when I left the theater. Was it a farce or a gripping tale of greed? I often laughed out loud, but was I supposed to?

On Jared Leto as Paolo Gucci:

Leto as Paolo does have some of the best lines in the film and manages to actually piss on the famed Gucci Flora scarf created for Princess Grace. I was jealous of that. It was something that I always wanted to do myself, as I was constantly being asked to try to revive that damned scarf.

On Salma Hayek as Pina Auriemma:

AdBridg.cmd.push(function() AdBridg.display(“div-gpt-ad-inarticle2”); );

Salma Hayek is great, as always, but she’s under-utilized in her role as the television psychic Pina Auriemma, who is key in the saga. The casting of Hayek is particularly inspired given that her husband is the current owner of Gucci, a fact which will be lost on the mainstream audience.

On Lady Gaga as Patrizia Gucci:

The true star of the film for me is Gaga. It is her film, and she steals the show. In her often over-the-top portrayal of Patrizia Gucci, her accent migrates occasionally from Milan to Moscow. But who cares? Her performance is spot-on. Her face is the thing that one can’t take one’s eyes off of. When she is on-screen, she owns the frame—not an easy task with so many seasoned and talented cast members vying for our attention. Too many, in fact.

On the film’s “camp” factor:

I was deeply sad for several days after watching House of Gucci, a reaction that I think only those of us who knew the players and the play will feel. It was hard for me to see the humor and camp in something that was so bloody. In real life, none of it was camp. It was at times absurd, but ultimately it was tragic.

On whether House of Gucci will be a hit:

Splash the Gucci name across things and they usually sell.

Literally NOBODY is looking forward to the new Colton Underwood series

The trailer release for the new Netflix reality series Coming Out Colton has arrived and people on Twitter are NOT excited.

The new show, which many feel is a disaster in the making, debuts on December 3 and details the former The Bachelor star’s journey of coming out as gay and taking part in queer life for the first time.

Critics have attacked the series in advance of its release, citing Underwood’s previous charges of stalking against Bachelor girlfriend, Cassie Randolph, as well as his alleged privilege for being white, wealthy, and handsome.

AdBridg.cmd.push(function() AdBridg.display(“div-gpt-ad-inarticle1”); );

PageSix reports that Randolph has refused to be involved with the show and, in fact, finds the whole thing deeply troubling.

“Cassie really just wants to move past any drama having to do with Colton,” one source said. “She’s being roped back into all this Colton mess because of the Netflix show. There are a lot of bad memories associated with the end of their relationship and she wishes there was a way to completely separate herself from his narrative.”

AdBridg.cmd.push(function() AdBridg.display(“div-gpt-ad-inarticle2”); );

The source added, “At her core, Cassie supports Colton telling his story if that helps him and other people in the LGBTQIA+ community. The part that sucks is that there’s really no way for him to tell his story without mentioning their breakup.”

Honestly, we can’t say we blame her for feeling this way.

Meanwhile, over on Twitter, people have played far less coy…

AdBridg.cmd.push(function() AdBridg.display(“div-gpt-ad-inarticle3”); );

“The fact that @netflix is still running this Colton Underwood series after he STALKED a woman (his ex) is beyond me,” said user @pattyswigs. “We need to be better. Giving stalkers and abusers is not something Netflix should be perpetuating. Do better.”

“I am very happy that Colton Underwood has felt safe to come out but him getting an entire show about it after stalking and harassing his ex girlfriend just makes me cringe so much,” added @grrrlcharlie.

“Colton Underwood getting a Netflix series further affirms that white men will never be held accountable for anything that they do,” said @202natt. “He stalked his ex and put her through hell. Now that he’s come out as an openly gay man they’re trying to glide past his bad behavior.”

AdBridg.cmd.push(function() AdBridg.display(“div-gpt-ad-inarticle4”); );

hopefully this film noir follows colton underwood to jail for abusively stalking women,” joked @MisterPreda.

I can’t be the only one annoyed that out of EVERYONE, Netflix decides to give Colton Underwood a platform,” wrote @mels452. “Again, I’m happy he’s living his truth, but that doesn’t negate the fact that he stalked his ex.”

“I wonder what gay men think about THIS trailer and the show?” wrote Perez Hilton. “Will U watch? #ColtonUnderwood can and will get away with so much in the community because of #PrettyPrivilege.”

AdBridg.cmd.push(function() AdBridg.display(“div-gpt-ad-inarticle5”); );

Spoiler alert to Perez: No, probably not.

Ari Lennox Arrested in Amsterdam – Singer Claims Racial Discrimination | VIDEO

*“I’m being arrested in Amsterdam for reacting to a woman racially profiling me” is what RB singer Ari Lennox tweeted on Monday morning (11-29-21). That tweet, by the way, came after a previous one in which she had accused “Amsterdam security” of hating Black people.

The bottom line is that on Monday, Lennox as arrested at Amsterdam Schiphol airport for disturbing public order, Dutch military police said after she had accused airline staff of racial discrimination.

That’s not what Dutch military police, who are responsible for security at Schiphol airport, are saying. They claim Lennox was held because of her aggressive behavior towards an airline official, and for being drunk in public.

“Our unit found a woman full of emotions, that wouldn’t calm down,” spokesman Robert van Kapel said. “That’s why she had to be taken into custody.”

As of this posting, it’s still unclear how long Lennox would remain in custody, Van Kapel said, as police were investigating claims of possible threats made by Lennox during the incident.

The news of Lennox’s arrest follows the performance of her latest single, “Pressure,” at the 2021 Soul Train Awards on Sunday, November 28. The 30-year-old singer is from Washington D.C. and has been signed to J. Cole’s Dreamville Records since 2015.

Hours after the incident on Monday, Lennox’s manager, Justin LaMotte, tweeted that the singer “is safe and appreciates the support and everyone checking on her.”

Lennox, whose real name is Courtney Shanade Salter, is best known for her 2019 single Shea Butter Baby, which has been streamed almost 114 million times on Spotify.

Miriam Margolyes loves surprising Harry Potter fans at King’s Cross

Miriam Margolyes likes to surprise ‘Harry Potter’ fans at King’s Cross.

The 80-year-old actress – who played Herbology teacher Professor Sprout in both 2002’s ‘The Chamber of Secrets’ and 2011 film ‘The Deathly Hallows – Part 2’ – admitted she isn’t the biggest fan of “fantasy” films, but she often heads to the London train station and poses for pictures with people visiting Platform Nine and 3/4.

She told the Metro newspaper’s 60 Seconds column: “[‘Harry Potter’] is probably what I’ll be best known for. It did a great deal for me because it made me very well known to millions of people.

“It’s not my kind of film at all because I’m not interested in fantasy. I prefer searing human drama and espionage so ‘Harry Potter’ is a bit anodyne for me. But it’s brought me an awful lot of friends.

“When I go to King’s Cross, I always go to the platform and say ‘I’m Professor Sprout if you want to take a photograph’. They’re very excited when they finally believe me.”

Meanwhile, Miriam – who is set to appear in BBC period drama Call The Midwife’s upcoming Christmas special – also admitted she isn’t a big fan of kids either, although she had to learn to cope on set.

She added: “I’m the Mother Superior. I love everything about it except the children. In an ordinary life, I wouldn’t have much to do with children.

“I don’t want to hurt them or anything, I just prefer to separate myself from them. But you can’t do that in ‘Midwife’ or ‘Harry Potter.’ “

Miriam co-starred in the ‘Potter’ films with Dame Maggie Smith – who played Professor McGonagall – and she admitted the veteran actress can be a “bit alarming”.

She said: “She is a little bit alarming. you have to be watchful with Maggie because if she’s cross, she doesn’t mind sharing it.

“She’s actually a very sweet lady and if you don’t irritate her she’s absolutely gorgeous. If you say something stupid, she will come back at you quite fiercely.

“But she hates it when people say they’re scared of her. I’d quite like people to be scared of me but they never are.”
