msmichel's rating of the film Josie and the Pussycats

Clever satire of consumer culture manipulation trapped within an 'Archies comics' adaptation. Fun girl power undertones featuring game performances from three leads (Cook never better). Supporting turns from Alan Cumming and the amazing Parker Posey elevate the material. Libatique's cinematography quite striking here as is the song soundtrack written for the film. Ten years plus on message still apt.
