House of Gucci – Blu-ray Review

Movie Review

I’m not going to lie. This was a hard watch. It’s very dry and would have worked better if filmed as a suspense-thriller instead of a drama, in my opinion. However, there are some performances that make watching this Ridley Scott film well worth watching.

Lady Gaga and Adam Driver’s performances were the one thing that kept me watching. Both were incredible to watch when on screen. However, the best actor in this one, for me, was Jared Leto. His performance was very nuanced, and he stole every scene he was in.

Al Pacino is such a great actor, but his Italian accent was, well, we could hear his natural New York mafia accent bleeding through… a lot. The film is still a worthy watch, but just be ready for a long-drawn-out film.

Video

Italy and Switzerland are beautifully presented here, even New York (which was shot in Italy), looked great. The flesh tones are perfect with the skin tones reflecting closely those in the northern region of Italy. The blacks are rich looking. I didn’t notice any artifacts and the more colourful costumes were stunning compared to the blue/grey tone most of the film carries.

Audio

With House of Gucci being a dialogue heavy film, you’ll never struggle to hear what is being said. Audio effects uses the DTS-HD Master 7.1 surrounds when required with the disco, shops and runway scenes taking the most advantage.

The LFE is also active when required, but never overpowering. All-in-all this a great sounding movie.

Extras Features

There are only three bonus features here running around 22-minutes.

  • The Rise Of The House Of Gucci is all about making the movie and features cast and crew.
  • The Lady of the House focuses on Lady Gaga’s performance.
  • Styling House of Gucci is all about the costumes in the film.

Conclusions and Final Thoughts

While this movie wasn’t for me it doesn’t make it a bad movie. The Blu-ray supports it well with stunning audio and video. The extras were lacking, but I’m not sure what else would have been interesting here.
