Left after 30 minutes: no plot, random unconnected scenes.

Many people, including us, left the theater after 15 minutes asking for a refund. Beware!!!

The Great Beauty was one of cheapest films and with continuos strip show dancing, I've have seen lately or ever. Don't subject your self to punishment. And, an Academy Award nonimee?? For this trash. Howeever, this a message of how much money was paid to get an nomination.

Maybe I just lack the finer sensibilities of the critics, but I thought the movie had no plot and was incoherent. (I don't like abstract art either.) I wasn't sleepy when I went in, but this movie kept putting me to sleep

Paolo Sorrentino's film is really just a huge turn-on that has the bad manners to go sour, succumbing to its own self-delusions of moral/political grandeur. Full Review

It’s an exploration of all things surface, yes, but it has soul too. Full Review
The Hollywood Reporter
Though Sorrentino’s vision of moral chaos and disorder, spiritual and emotional emptiness at this moment in time is even darker than Fellini’s...he describes it all in a pleasingly creative way that pulls audiences in through humor and excess. Full Review
New York Daily News
Sorrentino’s dazzling tribute to Roman indulgence is a bittersweet, slightly surreal epic. Full Review
The ghost of Federico Fellini hovers wickedly over The Great Beauty, a fantastic journey around contemporary Rome and a riot of lush imagery juggling past and present, sacred and profane, gorgeous and grotesque. Full Review
