Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A slight, if often riveting, behind-the-scenes documentary.
Fresh: An insider's view of high fashion's ultimate tastemakers proves it's not just for aficionados.
Fresh: It's kind of irresistible.
Rotten: There's something fishy about a documentary that takes its cues from a fictional movie.
Absolutely loved this film! VOGUE is such a fascinating publication and the famous Anna Wintour only adds to that. The film really answers a lot of questions about how the magazine is made, but also looks deeply into the industry.
Absolutely worth seeing!
More than what you'd expect
I had read the reviews for the September Issue before I actually went to the theatre and knew it was going to be a cut above the rest. I had no idea, however, it was going to be as insightful and entertaining as it was. You see the inner cogs of Vogue. You see the extraordinarily intersting working dynamic between Grace Coddington and Anna Wintour. And at risk of being cliché, you see another side of Wintour. You see Anna Wintour the mother, the businesswoman, the artist, the boss, and the socialite. But one side you fail to see, and perhaps it's simply that she never reveals this side, is the side of the confidant and friend. Hands down one of the best documentaries I've ever seen or likely will ever see.
Enough said. Anna Wintour, you are GOD.
