  1. Lusciously revealing fly-on-the-wall portrait of Anna Wintour.

    A splendid study of the forces and passions behind the world’s biggest fashion magazine.
  3. 75
    What comes across is that she is, after all, a very good editor.
  4. A slight, if often riveting, behind-the-scenes documentary.
  5. Consistent with her ice queen reputation, Wintour is often disconcertingly direct and frequently unfeeling, though not without a dry sense of humor.
  6. 70
    Behind the gloss of Vogue, a revealing look at work, creativity and two strong women
  7. 40
    The September Issue fixates on status and professional one-upmanship; if you want to see a movie that actually treats fashion as personal expression--in other words, art--keep a lookout for Anne Fontaine’s forthcoming biopic "Coco Before Chanel."

It's the less cynical side of The Devil Wears Prada (2006) but still highly entertaining. Expand

    It's a pretty straightforward take on closing a magazine issue, albeit in this instance a rather special issue of a rather special It's a pretty straightforward take on closing a magazine issue, albeit in this instance a rather special issue of a rather special magazine, to put it mildly. Those looking for scandalous revelation will be disappointed. And Wintour is by no means even rude, let alone the devilish harpy portrayed in that other piece of entertaining fiction. Expand

    Boring, ephemeral, favor-of-the-month tripe. This is a contrived doc and most of it feels staged. Don't pay to see this when you can see Boring, ephemeral, favor-of-the-month tripe.

    Was I watchin' the Disk 2 extra features? It's not even a movie. It's a goddamn interview, a goddamn 'feature disk' that doesn't have plot,Was I watchin' the Disk 2 extra features? It's not even a movie. It's a goddamn interview, a goddamn 'feature disk' that doesn't have plot, doesn't have even 2.1 channel, subtitles, and doesn't even have a proper intro. Yes, it's a real Anna Wintour. So what? There was simply no heart in making this so-called movie. Expand
