  • Excerpt: It is logical for Bling Ring’s ultimately superficial, stubborn, and entitled teens to run together as characters.

  • Summary: Sofia Coppola's beguiling, expertly directed true-crime tale nabs a fantastic A/V transfer from Lionsgate, but the accessories are not exactly designer.

  • Conclusion: These Coppola kids are really starting to bug me. They've proven themselves in the past and in collaborations with other filmmakers, but like their Academy Award-winning father, they've completely lost it.

The Bling Ring

AV Club
13 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Most of Sofia Coppola’s films take an ambivalent attitude toward fame, but The Bling Ring tackles the subject from a slight remove.

25 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Anyone who admires or tries to emulate the lives of celebrities, prepare for disappointment. You'll find little inspiration here, except maybe the very cool soundtrack. This film does not glamorise, or popularise this culture, which is arguably a healthy step in the right direction.
