I love the films Sofia Coppola comes up with! I saw "The Bling Ring" last night and was not disappointed - it is a funny, shifting, tongue-in-cheek on the mark portrayal of the madness of the celebrity obsession. The obsession that results in a feeling that we know people in the public eye, and have a right to invite ourselves to their homes. And this is what happens, a posse of adolescent middle-class LA girls and their gay friend (brilliant Israel Broussard portraying a young adult who is embracing his gayness, his performance is flawless) embarked on a thieving extravaganza, targeting homes of the celebrities next door (Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan et al). Time after time, they broke into celebrities' abodes and tried on stuff, innocently bagging a bracelet or two. Those "trips" continued and the thieving escalated with the amount of publicity their gang received. As their sense of cautiousness disappeared, they started to bag as much bling as they could carry away, occasionally taking Ferraris for a ride (returning them in time of the lawful owner's return back to LA). Until, of course, they got caught and were put behind bars. For real.

As the credits started to roll (to yet another great piece of music!), a couple of girls behind me voiced their opinions: "What was that about? Completely pointless..." I felt smug. God, I felt energised and elated after the film, a bit like after watching a fine thriller. The whole experience felt like a good thriller to me - I was at the edge of my seat, tensed and a couple of times literally holding my breath (the gun scene?!).

The film is very well made. Cinematography is beautiful. There are numerous scenes that are stunning and well thought through (the night driving, when we see just the road ahead? the car crash scene?

Disappointing! Cast were clearly capable and director has been marvellous in the past. I just found this structurally wanting. Within minutes the characters are robbing celeb houses. What I expected (and would have preferred) would have been the build up - the first forays, the aborted first robbery, the tentative first success, then introducing sloppiness before being caught. Instead, every burglary felt the same.

It's possible that the message was that the kids felt so little that there WAS NO build up, no jeopardy for them. I dunno, just doesn't seem very filmic with such little development.

By the end I had little idea who they were, why they'd done it... and most of all, why the celebs has such awfully inadequate security!!!

This film had so much potential. Emma and Taissa are amazing and Sofia Coppola's other movies are so good. I mainly watched this film as the virgin suicides is one of my favourite films and I also love Taissa in ahs. The problem with this movie is that it's so boring- it has a bad storyline, the scenes are awkward, unnecessarily long and the camera angles are boring- just some music in the background could have made it better and less strange to watch. The actors in this film were not the problem- they were all very good, its the script, the directing and the editing. Even without the best storyline this film could have been good but it was horrible- don't bother.

This film is pretty awful

One hour in and there's still the same overused footage of bad actresses stealing shoes and handbags. Nothing is happening, it's very dull and the story line is close to cringing.

Don't waste your time

It's all you could dream of if you lived in Hollywood - clever teens using Google to check which LA celebrities are out of town, breaking in, helping themselves to their valuables and selling them on while living their lifestyle while your parents pay no attention. Can you imagine? Celebrities have enough disposable income that they would never notice a missing broach.

Sofia Coppola's movie is a satire based upon true events, but isn't told satirically or turning the true events on their heads like a farce, lacking an Alan Partridge characterisation where traits could have been exaggerated. Instead it's peaking from behind the wardrobe (as theft happens) action, self-centred storyline with not-too-much background on each of the characters, which isn't suprising for shallow LA teens...

Yet despite stealing cars where no one notices a Porsche from a front drive is missing, a fired pistol or even un-made bedsheets? It might be set in La-La Land, but c'mon! An unreturned car missing from your drive going unreported?? Even the Hilton's aren't THAT fickle.

The satire comes from scenes being set to a banging left coast soundtrack of trashy Kei$ha, Chris Brown and more, but for lack of interest from an over 25 audience, it's not quite enough to believe it represents anything that means anything.

It's difficult to get down with this flick. It's a flick that wants to get down with the LA influenced youth yet be satirical, but filled with more flaws than a laminate floor company! Had it been shot like Summer Heights High the satire would have been more obvious. But na. It's, like, whatever.
