Welcome to FrockTalk, the web’s only costume-based movie review site. The goal of Frocktalk is to shed light on the magnificent artistry of costume design in motion pictures. Reviews on this site are written by working costume designers in the entertainment industry – people who know, better than anyone, what it takes to make it all happen. The focus of FrockTalk is not to comment on the big flashy costume dramas, but to call attention to the seemingly ordinary costume design work in film that silently and persuasively moves the audience toward understanding the characters. Costume design for motion pictures is an art form that deserves more recognition than it usually gets. Fancy, pretty costumes do not always equal effective, appropriate costumes. The art of the costume is in letting the audience know who the character is, before the actor even has a chance to open his mouth. Read on, and enjoy. ** CAUTION: ALL REVIEWS CONTAIN SPOILERS! **

Back it UP!

Hello Frocktalkers.  This has been a particularly distressing week, as my new MacBook Pro crashed.  Yes, less than ONE YEAR after I purchased it, the hard drive failed.  I have been so busy that I haven’t backed up my data in about three months, so all of it is lost.  Very sad.  Let this be a cautionary tale to all of you – no matter how busy you are – back up your data!  I now have my computer back (with a brand-new hard drive), and will try to post some interesting things by tomorrow.

In other news, The Sartorialist is coming to LA.  I hope you read this blog; it’s fantastic.  Here are the deets:

Los Angeles CA

It is going to be quite a party!  Dress accordingly!
