Cruella is directed by the Australian director Craig Gillespie whilst Dana Fox and Tony McNamara wrote the screenplay. The first thing that catches our eye in Disney’s latest film, Cruella, is the unique costume design of the film’s main villain starring the beautiful Emma Stone.
Stone’s costume design is so eye-catching that we can give it a separate rating, regardless of the quality of the film itself. If we know who was behind this magnificent, appropriate and stunning design, we will understand the reason why our attention is drawn to this part of the film.
Cruella costume was designed by Jenny Beavan, the two-time Academy Award-winning costume designer, and it is no wonder that it is the costumes that catch our eye, both in the teasers and in the film itself. Cruella does not go directly into the familiar stories we have seen in the cartoons, and it seeks to illustrate the roots of Cruella’s character. Cruella spends two hours and fourteen minutes telling us a sometimes lengthy, overly complex, long story; A story in which only scenes from it (the same great scenes of conflict) are well watered down.
In the end, it’s hard to say that Cruella is not to be enjoyed at all, but really, the film is nothing more than a long, glamorous, decorative show, and it seems to be largely failing to live up to the expectations of the audience.
Not long after the release of the live-action Cruella, the film was well-received by viewers in a short period. So far, viewers’ scores on this film have been 7.4 out of 10. Corolla is also receiving rave reviews from critics. The film’s directing critics praised the cast (especially Stone, Thompson, and Hauser), the costume design, and the soundtrack altogether.
