MIFF 2010 Review: Picture me: A Model’s Diary

28 Jul

Picture Me is a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the fashion industry that fails to offer any surprises and only scratches the surface of some of the more disturbing aspects of modeling.

While it’s comforting to realise that models suffer from the same doubts and insecurities that many in their 20s face, any chance at sympathy is lost given that many of the girls have been able to afford luxury Manhattan apartments with their earnings even if they did have to work pretty damn hard and be treated like pink fleshy attractive robots to do so.  Potentially sinister stories are hinted at but never properly explored and after reluctantly clapping during the films credits I felt as if I could have learnt as much had i watched the fashion channel for a couple of hours.  If you’ve ever been interested in fashion and modeling you might find this interesting but i was bored. **
