    The Bling Ring is the cinematic equivalent of the vapid, superficial kids it features — all visual panache and minimal substance. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The point of the film is vacuous materialism, but the way these larcenous children return the camera's impassive gaze suggests that no one is home behind their beautiful faces and dead eyes. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    The Bling Ring is Sofia Coppola's energetic, elegant, and entertaining take on this real-life story - a comedy, of sorts, if what it says about our obsession with the famous and the frivolous weren't so totally depressing. show more

    Narratively static and morally banal. That may be par for the course, however, when half the movie is spent watching shallow kids try on other people’s clothes. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    Coppola’s attitude toward her subject seems equivocal, uncertain; there is perhaps a smidgen of social commentary, but she seems far too at home in the world she depicts to offer a rewarding critique of it. show more

    It's when Coppola lets the beautiful, gorgeous things retain their sparkle that The Bling Ring shines most brightly. show more

    Uncharacteristically loose and deceptively frivolous, The Bling Ring is as much of an attack on The Hills Generation as any of Coppola’s previous films were an exercise in self-pity, which is to say not at all. show more

    The Bling Ring is a sly, often hilarious and at times sobering look at the 21st century fascination with celebrities. show more

    In other words, this punkish, sleek film about beautiful kids wallowing in purloined Prada could have been written by a grumpy 65-year-old white guy in gabardine, provided he had a sense of irony. The Bling Ring is the bridge between Coppola and Bill O’Reilly. show more

    Best movie I\'ve seen in months. A very honest morality tale, and very skillfully done, with great cinematography and mood music. Occasionally downright funny.
