The September Issue

Year: 2009
Production Co: A&E indie Films
Director: R J Cutler
Producer: Eliza Hindmarch/R J Cutler
Cast: Anna Wintour, Sienna Miller

I've said in other reviews how they'll make a documentary out of anything today, and after the success of The Devil Wears Prada and the mainstream curiosity about the fascist Vogue editor Anna Wintour, a film about the industry Bible was almost a given.

September marks the autumn new year in the fashion industry, and a team of filmmakers follow Wintour and various staff around the offices, parties and fashion shows as they put together the September 2007 issue - still the biggest magazine in world history at over 870 pages.

It's less about fashion and more about professional sniping and the clash of egos, particularly with one of Wintour's flame-haired deputies. And while it's not quite Earth shattering (unless you're in the field), it's as entertaining as a better dressed episode of Big Brother with better elocution.
