The Devil Wears Prada

The Devil Wears Prada ★★★

Capitalism's slickest trick is making people think they don't have any choice.

Streep's cerulean speech justifying the importance of her industry is pretty weak. Not really buying the trickle-down theory of fashion. I'm pretty sure whoever made Hathaway's sweater manufactured it in a whole variety of colors that had nothing to do with Oscar de la Renta. The whole thing seems like a massive scam to get people to spend way too much money on clothing.

But then again, I've been wearing essentially the same clothes since I was 14, so what do I know.
