The Bling Ring (♦♦♦)

Nicki, Sam, Chloe, Rebecca and Marc are part of a group obsessed with celebrities' lifestyles, so much so that they begin breaking into celebrities' houses to steal property. After many successful break-ins, police finally get leads when celebrities post security videos and ask for help from anyone who may know about the crimes.

The Bling Ring, directed by Sofia Coppola, is a constant fashion show virtually from the moment it starts, but little else. It is possibly the shallowest cinematic parade I have ever watched; in spite of that it is mindless fun: the clothes and jewelry are fabulous, and the shoes and bags are to die for.


If you walk into the movie theater with high expectations you may be hugely disappointed. As I said, The Bling Ring is mindless fun but no more than that. Enjoy it for what it is and forget about it as soon as you walk out, as I did.
