Anna Wintour

Anna Wintour (Lions Gate Entertainment)

Though a magazine's staff would like to think every issue is iconic, the first among possible equals at Vogue is the fall edition that previews what supposedly will be hot in the fashion world in the coming year. That particular publication is the subject of this documentary by genre veteran R.J. Cutler ("American High"), which puts particular emphasis on celebrated editor Anna Wintour as she and her workers survey various designers and make big decisions on what to present or not. If the effect leaves you thinking of "The Devil Wears Prada," don't be surprised. *** (PG-13: P)
