Critic Reviews for The September Issue

All Critics (114) | Top Critics (47) | Fresh (95) | Rotten (19)

  • The frosty Winter is renowned for being something of a human steamroller, but the documentary shows the more interesting character to be her right-hand woman and creative director, Grace Coddington...One for the fashionistas.

  • The September Issue is a misshapen, mix-and-match affair, an ill-fitting ensemble of individually compelling pieces.

  • Give [Anna Wintour] a knife and a temper-raising goose and she wouldn't be out of place chasing a screeching Karen Black around her apartment.

    November 17, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Grace, the movie implies, is the genius behind what Vogue really sells, which is romantic aspirational fantasies for women.

    October 23, 2009 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • While it's fun for fashionholics just to watch a movie in which people say "It's a famine of beauty!" and "The jacket is the new coat," the film becomes more substantial as it narrows its focus to two people: an artist and a curator.

    October 1, 2009 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • A mesmerizing study of the tension between commerce and creativity.

Audience Reviews for The September Issue

    Kind of interesting, and kind of everything you'd expect it to be. Wanted less of Wintour being bitchy and more of why she was being bitchy.

    You're screen will practically frost over from Anna Wintour's icy personality but this is an interesting inside look at the organization of Vogue's big issue.

    It is strangely fascinating to have a close look at the creative process behind the biggest issue of the most influential fashion magazine in the planet and see how one woman's personal opinion can have such an incredible weight and impact on the fashion industry in general.
