I loved this movie. If you like Devil Wears Prada or Ugly Betty, this is the real thing. If you like The West Wing or documentaries like The War Room this has the same pace and insiders view of a suitably chaotic and hightly charged world. A fast paced intelligent movie and a fascinating glimpse of power of Anna Wintour and the influence she has on the world of high fashion. Great to see the DVD come out the same time as the film release too!

I am not in the expected demographic for this DVD but I really enjoyed it-it is well made, not too long ,offering a good insight into the fashion magazine industry.The thing which makes it fascinating even for those of us not into fashion is the dynamic between Anna and Grace. Do not let the theme put you off this is a film about power and creativity!

"The September issue" (2009), directed by RJ Cutler, is a behind-the-scenes documentary about the production of the September 2007 Vogue issue. Of course, this documentary is also about Anna Wintour, the woman who has been Editor in Chief of American Vogue since 1988, and that is also rumored to have been the inspiration for the "boss from hell" in the film "The Devil wears Prada".

Cutler's crew was given ample access to Anna Wintour's meetings with her staff, and went with Anna to many activities that are part of her job, for example fashion shows and visits to fashion designers. The director was also granted final cut rights, and it is easy to see that in the result he achieved, this interesting and somewhat hard-edged documentary, where elegant clothing and caustic remarks are similarly pervasive.

"The September issue" provides the spectator with a glimpse into the hard and extremely competitive world of the fashion business, where only the fittest seem to survive and even photos of very beautiful women need to be digitally enhanced. This documentary also allows us to know a little more about Anna Wintour, probably one of the more influential women in that world, and someone who happens to be rather scary when she thinks that her staff's efforts are below the standards of excellence and innovation expected from them.

On the whole, I can say that I enjoyed watching "The September issue" and that I can recommend it to you, provided that you are at least remotely interested in the fashion world and the way it works.

If you are interested in fashion, or journalism, or fashion-journalism, this is for you. A very professionally-made film, tightly edited, which places you for two hours at the very centre of the fashion world.
You are in Vogue's offices watching them prepare their important September issue. Everyone seems to be afraid of the editor in chief, Anna Wintour, who appears to have the final word about EVERYTHING. She has Art Directors but they quake in their shoes as she eyes their lay-outs. No-one dares to say "no" to her, but she says no to plenty of people! Some imbalance here, eh?
What is interesting about this documentary, beautifully photographed and seeming to last 30 minutes, not 120, is that it is a study in power, too.
How is it that this somewhat intimidating woman has managed to surround herself ONLY with people who never dare stand up to her and sometimes tell her that she is wrong? IS she ever wrong?
Well, I suppose some of the film's suspense comes from our hoping that she will meet her match, and I shall try not to spoil the film for you by not telling you if she does or she doesn't.
There is one other vibrant personality who does somewhat give our Anna a run for her money, an ex-model named Grace Coddington, now Fashion Editor of Vogue, often called " a genius" by Ms. Wintour herself. This doesn't stop La Wintour from throwing into the trashcan plenty of beautiful photos and clothes Coddington picks.
If the success of a film is how well it submerges you into a world other than your own, then this film is 100% successful. There is not a boring moment. Well done, for it must have been so difficult to be a fly on the wall with these rather exagerated personalities. And please, Anna Wintour, don't ever offer me a job, in any capacity......

A glossy magazine is a lot like a haute couture dress, the uninitiated wouldn't appreciate all that goes on underneath the effortless exterior and The September Issue goes quite a way to setting the record straight.

Although it is a horrible cliché to refer to it as the real Devil Wears Prada, that's actually not far from the truth although its focus is different. Instead of the editor and her hapless assistant this documentary looks more at the relationship between editor Anna Wintour and genius stylist Grace Coddington and how their minds work to piece together the massive September issue of US Vogue and it is truly fascinating.

Congratulations to the filmmakers who did not fall for one of the two obvious ways to approach its subject matter - either trying to satisfy all the myths about Wintour or being brought in to do PR showing her mooning over sick kiddies. Instead, they play it totally straight and the Vogue staff come across as knowledgeable, hard-working and creative. Credit goes to Wintour as well for not putting on any airs and graces, I strongly suspect that what you see here is what you get in real life and that is refreshing in itself.

The really interesting element to the film is that everyone else seems to add fuel to the fire of the Wintour myth. Designers are concave when they see her, businessmen are fawning over her, however it is Coddington (who started work on Vogue on the very same day as Wintour) who remarks to an underling that you have to stand up to Wintour or you won't get anywhere. And that is what it seems like to the viewer; you have nothing to fear if you understand the objective of the enterprise. It is the people who sit there cowed and do not fight their corner who come across the worst.
