Although Sorrentino’s Fellini mash-up adds little of substance to what il maestro showed and said all those years ago, it’s still a remarkable cinematic experience. show more
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. show more
Gambardella’s world-weary look back at his sweet life, eclipsed by his turning sixty-five, is a dizzying fantasia of flash and filigree, and what it lacks in direct narrative is well patched-over with frenetic and emotion-rich sequences. This movie is a sight and sound workout. show more
I watched this extraordinary movie as a rather educated and well read Italian born and I kept telling myself how poorly the subtitles translated what the actors were actually saying and how; like reading The Bard to first graders. Not a mall movie. Cannot do!
Extraordinary imagery. Italy as you will never see it.
Too bad, guess you didn't undertand much. Subtitles?
