The movie was not as exciting as The September Issue, but it seemed much more candid and less polished. You get to gawk as Valinto simultaneously preens for all of the attention and pouts because of it. He is a genius and a work-a-holic and completely oblivious to the empire he has built and the work he demands of others. He comes off as selfish, childish, and lacking intention. Then again, just to see 75 year old Valintino sky down some alp is worth it.
