For those of you asking, it’s the most fun I’ve had at the movies in a long time. Despite its length, you are entertained throughout.— Stephen Mariani (@StephenMariani) November 4, 2021
#HouseofGucci plays like a Shakespearian tragedy. Great freaking performances from every actor. Lady Gaga exudes old Hollywood glamour as Patrizia Gucci. Her performance is one of the best this year. Jared Leto gets lost in character and nails it. #screening— CineMovie TV (@CineMovie) November 4, 2021
