  • Sorrentino’s dazzling tribute to Roman indulgence is a bittersweet, slightly surreal epic. 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.
