'Devil wears Prada' – failed intellectual and humanising aspirations. A film that suggests it is about finding the true values, turns out to be a long version of 'Teenage Makeover'. What made me cringe is the boring, static main character – she never changes, although they make her 'journey' the main theme! The girl destroys friendships, relationships, and then opts out of the high-flying job for the exact same reason: self-centredness. Emotionally, her behaviour makes no sense; logically neither. From beginning to end, she's drifting though life like an ice block, reflecting but never warming up to anything or anyone.
