I think that in documentaries about living people, the filmmaker keeps the camera on the subject for so long, that the subject eventually forgets about the camera. That doesn't happen in The September Issue. Anna Wintour seems to be always aware of the camera's presence. Nevertheless, the movie gives an interesting peek at how one magazine (and one person within that magazine) can exert a tremendous influence on the fashion industry.
My rating: **** (out of 5)
