Cine L'Mod Presents
The Self-Destruction of Gia©
a film by JJ Martin
"Notable...especially compelling. Splendid archival footage attests
to the awesome beauty, intelligence and recklessness."
Kevin Thomas, LA Times
"Her eyes locked in mortal combat with the cameras that every second
of every day threatened to expose the terrified child behind the seductive
mask ... here wrenched back from the grave she dug for herself ... will
break your heart."
Ron Stringer, LA Weekly
"If you think you learned all there is to know about tragic supermodel
Gia Carangi in Gia,' starring Angelina Jolie, think again ... Here you'll
see firsthand the rise and fall of the fashion icon."
"JJ Martin's study of supernova, supermodel Gia Carangi is far more
powerful than the fictional drama that brought Angelina Jolie acclaim
... a fine array of witnesses ... but it's the shots of Gia herself
that tell the story the best. She was too much for this world."
