The September Issue

DVD review from The Movie Snob

The September Issue (B). This is a documentary about Vogue magazine and its legendary editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour. (Wintour is supposedly the inspiration for Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada.) The cameras just kind of follow her around as she does her things, which are primarily (1) going to fashion shows, and (2) making snap judgments about what pictures will and won’t go into her magazine. The movie is more interesting when it follows Grace Coddington, who is one of Anna’s top lieutenants. It’s kind of fun to watch Anna torture Grace with her arbitrary decisions. Anyway, it’s not the most earth-shattering topic, but it’s an enjoyable documentary.
