In the end it's just a friggin' ad
18 January 2019 | by phillipelderSee all my reviews

Let's be real, it'd be hard to make something with all of the elements here and come out with something bad: a talented actress, good choreography, a beautiful setting, marvelous wardrobe, Spike Jonze behind the lens, and a stellar track to boot.

But where Weapon of Choice's entertainment stemmed from getting to see to see how much spunk was left in Walken from his dancing days, Kenzo World is just a self-contained perfume ad whose motif is undone by the commercialism it's partaking in.

We get it; this is a strong, independent, energetic, complex woman who is not where she wants to be in life, her feelings muted by the high society she's trapped in-- but in the end she finds escape from these feelings by... jumping through the corporate logo of a perfume being sold, and we learn that her complexities are what's been contained in this... perfume.

It overwrites the entire point of what it had going for it and falls flat on its face, as most commercials do wherein they're trying to persuade you to express your individualism through consumerism.

Anyways, this was pretty much just a paycheck for everyone involved, and not anything all that noteworthy.

And HI to someone on the crew! I guess! As it wasn't until I reviewed this movie that someone went through and downvoted all my reviews. Sorry you worked on such a lame duck!
