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! **

Happy Third Birthday to Frocktalk!!!

Hello Frocktalkers – HAPPY THANKSGIVING if you’re in the USA, and Happy Frocktalk Birthday if you’re not!  I would like to thank you for three beautiful years of Frocktalking – it’s been so nice to hear from so many of you; thank you for your support.  It’s my pleasure to share the art of motion picture costumes with you, and I intend to keep doing it for a long, long time.  I would like to extend a very special thanks to the person behind the scenes here at Frocktalk, technical wizard Matthew Nyquist.  Without his help and expertise, I would never be able to do this.  Counting my blessings today for so many reasons.  Thank you, everyone!
