Now Available to Own on Bluray & DVD + Digital
“House of Gucci starts promising with performances that match the levels campy tone of this insane story. But it soon fizzles out into a boring character piece that grinds almost to a halt before it’s closing scenes.” - Nick L’Barrow (CRPWrites)
“House of Gucci is a fun, campy tale with strong, yet sometimes ridiculous, but committed performances. Go into it with an expectation for an entertaining ride and don’t expect it to get too deep or you’ll be disappointed!” - Erica Richards (CRPWrites)
