A shoot like the Nylon one just goes to prove she can do stuff without being trashy but still have a strong sense of sexuality. Which is what infuriates me when she does the other stuff.

Film Director Observes That Fashion People Can Be ‘Extremely Bitchy’
Quote:
After Indira Cesarine was ridiculed for her four-minute-long film The Crush, starring Julia Restoin Roitfeld and her boyfriend, Robert Konjic, the budding director fought back on TFS: "Apparently my short fashion film with Julia Roitfeld is an absolute horror, and I should commit fashion suicide before making another film — what do you think? have I dug my own grave daring to try to be a director, or are they just being extremely bitchy? maybe it's time to become a happy housewife and forget about this ***%$%^#$%^ business." Girl, we've all been there.

apparently, this director thinks we aren't entitled to our own opinions on this short.

No director worth their salt that I know would publicly whine about getting criticized. She needs to grow up, get a thicker skin and maybe next time try making a decent film

I understand an artist being sensitive and defensive over work which they have poured themselves into, but her arguments and attempt at rallying the masses are obnoxious as hell.

I especially like how she goes after the writer of the article, when that journalist was just doing her job and quoting people's opinions. Hypocritical much?

Am I confused or did she actually attempt to get one of the fashion editor fired?!
I didn't like the video because I found it pretentious, even for the genre of "fashion film", but I actually tought her post quoted in #917 was a funny tongue-in-cheek reaction to the criticisms. Reading her other posts it's clearly not and the movie is just like its director.

I watched this video awhile ago on iwanttobearoitfeld.com and I couldn't even sit through the entire thing . And I absolutely adore Julia and have been a fan of hers for a very long time. So I think that in itself says alot.

I understand what a fashion film is and what its aim is and I'm sure most of our members do as well so I don't think it's an issue of us misunderstanding what the film is about.

At the end of the day Chrissy was right. Its just plain awful from the cinematography to the acting. And that can be put on the director herself.

Please delete if this is too o/t but I can't get over the directors other comment/s; 'I emailed the owner of the Fashion Spot already (who I know) to tell him he needs to employ some better journalists.'

Freedom of speech, anyone? The tone of her comments just blatantly say good reviews or nothing at all. Horrible attitude

^ That's crazy! It never ceases to amaze me, adults who act like children and need praise every minute.
