Now this movie is just insane. It’s supposed to be a fashion drama, but it’s basically an overlong ad for Elite Models with the best and worst the 80s had to offer: Campy, kitschy visuals, spandex, ribbons, thong leotards, synthesizer music, big hair and loads of eye make-up: And this is just the first 15 minutes. Now I’m not telling you to watch the whole thing, but do skip forward to 08:50, where you’ll find a young Steven Meisel in all his glory insanely yelling “Nastier, stranger…wilder! wilder! sicker!” to a pack of 80s supermodels such as Paulina Porizkova, Kelly Emberg and Carol Alt. No, really, watch this segment. It’s just too much.
