The September Issue (documentary)

 

Welcome to the first installment of my monthly inspired recommendations.  If you haven’t seen The September Issue by director R.J. Cutler, a documentary which largely follows the lives of Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, and creative director at Vogue, Grace Coddington, I highly recommend it.  Whether or not you think fashion is frivolous or high art it is impossible to ignore the sheer forward moving force of two of fashion’s most important influences.  As a film school veteran I was often at a loss to find women on film unapologetically and systematically achieving a goal.  It is refreshing to witness the unemotional decisiveness of Anna Wintour as she cooly edits a fashion shoot wardrobe or the inspired artistic genius of Grace Coddington as she passionately defends the artistic integrity of her photos.   These two contrasting women move through the everyday challenges of the fashion world and within their personal relationship to each other with clear goals and determination.  Ultimately this documentary is a meditation on active and effective female visionaries.  Watch these women devise their powerful self-realized lives and be inspired to manifest your vision regardless of life’s inevitable obstacles.
