There's no escaping the fact that Benasra's doc does little more than perpetuate the myth of women-all women-as vapid materialists worshipping at the altar of Manolo Blahnik.

While fascinating at times delving into shoes as emotional accessorizing, the infomercial leaning, ecstatic cluelessness of these quick fix female shoe junkies did not shed light on how corporations create unhealthy consumer imaginary needs for profit.

Watching "God Save My Shoes," Julie Benasra's blithely blinkered documentary, is like gorging on empty calories: flavorful, diverting and with a slightly nauseating aftertaste.

Benasra obviously has an affinity for her subject. But her alternately lighthearted and pseudo-serious approach here ultimately proves more wearisome than illuminating.

Fluffy footwear documentary plays mostly like a luxe shopping promo.

A delicious combination of Sex and the City and a Modern Language Association convention.
