    The Great Beauty is an utterly ravishing portrait of listless luxuriance, a fantasy of decadent wealth and beauty that evokes Fellini's La Dolce Vita by way of Baz Luhrmann.

    J. R. Jones Chicago Reader
    January 30, 2014

    Celebrating Rome in all its decay, this florid comedy by Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo, This Must Be the Place) opens with a hyperbolically gaudy party honoring a celebrity journalist on his 65th birthday.

    A riotous film that finds depth, clarity and refreshment in even the shallowest of pools.

    Tom Long Detroit News

    Throughout the film, Sorrentino delivers gorgeous images, crazy images, startling and sexy and serene images; it's a visual bath of sorts - the great beauty is everywhere, Jep (and we) just have to be open to it.

    Though there's precious little drama, Sorrentino's skills as an image-maker are indisputable.

    It's a beauty, all right. It's more a style show than a deep philosophical treatise, but with surfaces this sleek and faces this interesting, I'll take style over substance any day.

    Sean Burns Philadelphia City Paper

    A richly symbolic meditation on aging, mortality and precious time wasted.

    Lewis Beale News & Observer (Raleigh, NC)
    October 01, 2014

    Sometimes too overblown, surreal and obtuse for its own good, director Paolo Sorrentino's film is nonetheless an exquisitely composed portrait of vapidity and decline.

    Renee Schonfeld Common Sense Media
    May 13, 2014

    Exceptional, mature film dazzles, offers haunting insights.

    "The Great Beauty" is a great romance: a man and a city and a love that cannot be consummated but which will consume you surely. Somewhere, Baz Luhrmann weeps.

    Matt Glasby

    If it sounds a bit ponderous, well, maybe it is, but it's also smart, warm-hearted and sumptuously shot.

    John Beifuss Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

    'The Great Beauty' is certainly striking, but too often what it's striking are poses.
