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! **

Biting the Big Fat Hand that Feeds?

Hello, faithful Frocktalkers!  I have been so underwater with work; I apologize for my lack of posts.  Hopefully in a few weeks I will be free to bring you more reviews, insight, and fodder.  In the meantime, I will give you this article from the LA Times, about the rich getting richer in this sucky economy.  That’s right.  Hollywood enjoys the biggest box office returns EVER, and studios cut their budgets, financing “dries up”, etc.  Seems like fried logic, right?  Well, read on.

Have a great week, and I look forward to bringing you more Frocktalking good times soon!
