Brubaker Producer. August 19, Rating: 1. July 3, Full Review…. View All Critic Reviews Sep 15, I don't know if Angelina Jolie was great casting for Gia Carangi, but Mila Kunis was decent casting for a young Angelina Jolie, although I can't see Kunis could ever grow lips like these.
Now, come on, Carangi and few other women in the history of modeling have had lips these big, and it's not like heroin makes you bloat.
Yeah, now that's the way to sell this film, because a young Angelina Jolie going bi in a TV series that was made for HBO partly as a big middle finger to the FCC sounds terribly dull.
Well, naturally, it's been cleaned up quite a bit ever since they started running it on Lifetime, but don't worry, because without the nudity, it's still a decent soap opera, probably because the director and score composer went on to make a jazz opera.
Considering all my rambling, the idea behind a jazz opera must be more interesting than you'd expect an Angie Jolie-starring, bisexuality and drug-themed HBO film, but don't worry, because for a film showed on Lifetime these days, it is interesting, for all of its shortcomings.
The film follows a pseudo-documentary style by incorporating interview footage of performers as Gia Carangi's peers that feels rather expendable, due to an uneven usage of the interview footage, which, by its own right, is disconcerting enough by eliminating a sense subjectivity that takes you out of the drama's intimacy, even though it tries too hard to supplement thematic focus.
If nothing else, the unevenly used documentary style glosses over certain material, although it's not as though the film waits for someone to come in and objectively explain the situation so that it has an excuse to pick up the pace, because no matter how much filler leaves the storytelling to drag its feet to runtime of a little over two hours, this film isn't long enough to get all that deep into the nuance of the lead.
There's a certain sense of aimlessness deriving from the film's jarringly alternating between repetitious dragging and a certain rushing which is arguably more recurrent than anything in this character study which seems to be missing something, at least in terms of a sense of material, and gives you not much beyond the bare bones of the subject matter, just like so many other TV films.
Man, even Terence Blanchard's corny score is distractingly trite, but the conventions don't end there, because as ambitious as this film is as an edgy drama on premium cable, it feels much too much like a TV film, complete with messy pacing that is manufactured to accommodate a channel schedule, and with a superficiality that is often forcibly maintained.
Quite frankly, there's hardly any subtlety to Jay McInerney's and Michael Cristofer's, which is sloppy and undercooked enough without contrived characterization and set pieces that beat you over the head with themes regarding a disturbed girl being broken by the modeling industry, and finalize the script as hands-down the biggest issue of the film, even though subtlety issues also stand firm in a directing Cristofer's abuse of the trite, either flashy or bluesy score, and over-exploration of the problematic writing.
I don't know if it's reflecting an ambition or a laziness, but the film's sentimentality plagues the final product throughout its course, almost as much as the script's subtlety issues, problematic structure and TV-grade superficiality, which render the final product kind of inconsequential in a lot of ways.
The film would have fallen into mediocrity, at best, if it wasn't inspired in a number of ways that are common for TV flicks this high in profile, because as misguided as this drama is, it has distinct dramatic strengths, and some technical strengths.
This is HBO we're talking about here, thus, Cristofer is not held back by boundaries set by commercial breaks and censorship, and although he is held back by TV film sensibilities that stand firm, only with a little more nudity and swearing, he does give this film a certain edge that does justice to edgy subject matter.
The story of punk-turned-troubled model Gia Marie Carangi is nothing new for dramatic filmmaking, in terms of theme, focusing on her drug addiction and bisexual affairs, both of which make for a story that is more intriguing than formulaic, with a dramatic depth that is betrayed by flimsy scripting and some misguided spots in direction.
It all leads back to the disturbed Carangi, so it should go without saying that most of the material falls on the shoulders of the beautiful Angelina Jolie, who was merely up-and-coming when she took this project, the other side of which broke her out, as well it should, for Jolie is more convincing than the writing when it comes to selling the edgy, glamourless nature of a woman who was touted as glamorous, being charismatic in her roughness, until Carangi becomes lost in her addictions and allows Jolie to become lost in Carangi, gradually projecting more and more intensity, more and more anguish, until anchoring powerful moments in the film through a convincing and emotionally charged portrayal of a beautiful star who must face devastating consequences for her actions and addictions.
Jolie is revelatory, and if there is genuine impact in this drama, then it rides on Jolie's back, supported by the worthy subject matter and highlights in other performances, both on and off of the screen, that make the final product fair, for all of its shortcomings.
Once the shoot has wrapped, uneven and questionable usage of interview footage take you out of the character drama almost as much as pacing problems, TV film conventions and superficialities, and contrivances, found in unsubtle writing and sentimental direction, make the final product an underwhelming TV drama, brought to life enough by worthy subject matter, handsome cinematography, moving directorial highlights, and strong performances - especially by Angelina Jolie - to make Michael Cristofer's "Gia" a fair and sometimes moving, if superficialized portrait on how far someone of great beauty can sink.
Cameron J Super Reviewer. Jun 10, Angelina Jolie has made and directed some good films and then there is this surprising bit of crap that was created through HBO Films.
The main character is never someone that we ultimately are drawn to and her ultimate downfall is not something that the audience can get emotionally drawn into.
John B Super Reviewer. Aug 30, The HBO film Gia is a compelling biopic about Gia Marie Carangi, America's first supermodel.
The story follows Gia's rise to stardom, along with her turbulent lifestyle and drug addiction, which ultimately ended with her becoming one of the first celebrities to die from AIDS.
Angelina Jolie leads the cast as Gia, and gives an excellent performance. However, the film style is a bit distracting and breaks up some of the momentum.
There are also some storytelling issues, and some of the characters are a little underdeveloped. But even with its flaws, Gia is a captivating and provocative film with a fascinating story.
Dann M Super Reviewer. May 25, Well made film on the supermodel Gia Carangi. Well acted by Angelina Jolie, this film is the tragic story of one of America's first supermodels.
The film is a good drama film. The cast here are good and they all deliver solid performances. The film could have been a lot better, and I find that there were a few scenes where the material didn't work.
However due to the good cast, it makes this film that much more interesting despite the lack of effective material. The film is good for what it is, the performances saves this film from being an utter failure.
Like I said, it could have been a stunning film with a great story, but there's just something missing from it to truly make it stand out, and make it a memorable biopic.
Considering the life that Gia had, you'd expect something great with this film. There's something missing from the films plot to really make it stand out, and it's a good film, but never anything great.
If you're looking for one of Angelina Jolie's better performances, this film is it. For a biopic, Gia is one that could have been a lot better, but in any case, is good to watch.
Don't expect anything great with this one. Expect a good film that should have been better. If it wasn't for the cast, I think this film would certainly have failed.
This is one of those biopics that should have turned out better than it actually did. Still worth watching for one of Angelina Jolie's better performances.
