The
Ridley

talented
star

Jared
Leto
and
Salma
Hayek.

Maurizio

murder.
The
early
critic’s
review
of
the
movie
is
out
and
the
global
audience
has
hailed
Gaga’s
portrayal
of
the
controversial
Patrizia
Reggiani
along
with
Scott’s
intricate
filmmaking.

House-Of-Gucci

Variety’s
Owen
Gleiberman
writes,
“Scott,
working
from
a
shrewdly
layered
script
by
Becky
Johnston
and
Roberto
Bentivegna
(it’s
based
on
Sara
Gay
Forden’s
2001
book
“The
House
of
Gucci:
A
Sensational
Story
of
Murder,
Madness,
Glamour,
and
Greed”),
directs
with
a
tone
of
deadpan
puckish
gravitas.
Spanking
the
action
along
with
Italian
pop
songs
and
snippets
of
opera,
he
stages
each
scene
in
an
impeccable,
neoclassical
head-on
way
that
has
no
ironic
distance
yet
creates
space
for
the
suck-in-your-breath
comedy
of
scandalous
behaviour.”

While
praising
Lady
Gaga’s
act,
Vox’s
Alissa
Wilkinson
states,
“And
at
the
centre
of
it
all
is
Gaga’s
Patrizia,
who
Maurizio
declares
is
a
dead
ringer
for
Elizabeth
Taylor.
(You
can
kind
of
see
his
point.)
She
schemes,
she
cries,
she
makes
decisions
Maurizio’s
too
spineless
to
make
himself.
She
calls
a
psychic
on
TV
and
becomes
her
best
friend.
She
strokes
Paolo’s
ego
and
stabs
him
in
the
back.
Gaga
climbs
inside
the
skin
of

if
not
the
real
Patrizia

a
fantastical
approximation
who
smokes
like
a
chimney,
narrows
her
eyes
till
you
expect
lasers
to
shoot
out,
and
turns
every
single
scene
she
appears
in
into
a
grand,
glorious
showcase.
Her
hand
gestures
alone
are
worthy
of
close
reading.
She’s
Lady
Macbeth
as
a
diva,
darling,
and
dancing
queen.”

However,
Entertainment
Weekly’s
Leah
Greenblatt
points
out
a
minor
shortcoming
in
The

House
Of
Gucci

and
writes,
“Gucci
might
have
been
a
better
movie
if
it
had
fully
committed
to
the
high
camp
its
Blondie-soundtracked
trailer
promised.
It’s
more
serious
than
that,
at
least
intermittently;
a
strange
melange
of
too
much
and
not
enough.
The
script
also
skimps,
weirdly,
on
the
actual
murder,
which
is
treated
mostly
as
a
framing
device
and
felonious
afterthought
until
the
final
moments.
But
even
a
House
divided
is
still
more
fun
than
it
probably
should
be:
a
big
messy
chef’s
kiss
to
money
and
fashion
and
above
all,
movie
stars

crimping
and
scheming
like
they
have
nothing
left
to
lose
until
it’s
true.”

The
film
is
based
on
the
novel,
‘The
House
of
Gucci:
A
Sensational
Story
of
Murder,
Madness,
Glamour,
and
Greed’ by
Sara
Gay
Forden.
It
follows
the
controversial
story
of
Maurizio
Gucci,
an
Italian
businessman
and
head
of
the
fashion
house
Gucci
and
his
wife
Patrizia
Reggiani.
In
1995,
Maurizio
was
shot
and
killed
by
a
hitman
(allegedly
hired
by
Patrizia)
on
the
steps
outside
his
office
in
Milan.
