    For a while, the girls' personalities seem almost interchangeable, but that's part of the texture. Katie Chang gives the leader a ripe synthetic glow, and Emma Watson does a remarkable job of demonstrating that glassy-eyed insensitivity need not be stupid.

    The movie captures a moment when the lines separating anonymity, fame, and notoriety are finer than ever. And as Watson’s social climber prattles on to reporters about what a great “learning lesson” her criminal experience has been, it’s easy to see another star in the making.

    Coppola’s uproarious and bitingly timely film feels every inch a necessary artwork.

    This is a movie that cries out for more than the too-cool-for-school Coppola’s trademark hipster anomie. She may be too much a part of the celebrity-mongering world she portrays to do justice to its injustices.

    The Bling Ring is the cinematic equivalent of the vapid, superficial kids it features — all visual panache and minimal substance.

    Coppola’s attitude toward her subject seems equivocal, uncertain; there is perhaps a smidgen of social commentary, but she seems far too at home in the world she depicts to offer a rewarding critique of it.

    Narratively static and morally banal. That may be par for the course, however, when half the movie is spent watching shallow kids try on other people’s clothes.

The movie challenges the public to reexamine values and hopefully make changes. Expand

    "The Bling Ring" 10 Scale Rating: 6.0 (Decent) ...

    The Good: Entertaining and fun, the film is a solid case study on people's obsession with celebrities. Emma Watson is really coming into her own with a wide variety of roles and in "The Bling Ring" she is so easy to hate, pity, and sometimes laugh at.

    The Bad: Beyond Watson, the rest of the cast is largely one dimensional and uninteresting. It's a shall story and you know that going in, but that aspect wears thin about 30 minutes in.

    Es necesaria la sobre exposición de Emma Watson por el simple hecho de ser EMMA WATSON?
    Ni siquiera se desarrolla la historia de otros personajes principales.
    La dirección de Sofia Coppola es bastante pobre, nada para acotar. No merece ser vista en el cine
