Movie Reviews

FILMINK (Australia) - 10/10 by Sarah Ward Sorrentino's film may flit between vignettes of extravagance and eccentricity, but more is always toiling underneath.
CineVue - 10/10 by Daniel Green Drunk on the visual majesty of Rome, just as Fellini once was, this is arthouse cinema at its most effortlessly entrancing, with life and art blending into one magnificent whole.
San Francisco Examiner - 10/10 by Walter Addiego If you know Federico Fellini's "La Dolce Vita," you'll be unable to watch The Great Beauty without thinking about it. This gorgeous Italian movie, like its predecessor, balances pungent satire and a more melancholy mood in portraying the dissolute world of the upper crust in contemporary Rome.
RogerEbert.com - 10/10 by Simon Abrams This 43-year-old filmmaker is a major talent. Though he may not be the second coming of Fellini, his films all have a funny, refreshingly complex perspective, and his latest work is a perfect example of why he is the next big Italian thing.
The New York Times - 10/10 by Manohla Dargis A deliriously alive movie, The Great Beauty is the story of a man, a city, a country and a cinema, though not necessarily in that order.
Village Voice - 10/10 by Michael Atkinson There's little sense in trying to resist the film's relentless boogie-woogie party vibe, its tumultuous visual banquet, its unpredictable sense of switchblade satire, its fools' parade of modern grotesques, or its river of startling melancholy, turning from a wary trickle to a flash flood by film's end. Sorrentino's vision is the size of Rome itself, and his confidence is dazzling.
Time Out London - 10/10 by Dave Calhoun It’s an exploration of all things surface, yes, but it has soul too.
The Guardian - 10/10 by Peter Bradshaw This movie looks and feels superb, it is pure couture cinema. But there is also a excess of richness and bombast and for all its sleekness I felt that the spark of emotion was being hidden, and there is a kind of frustration in the operatic sadness.
The Telegraph - 10/10 by Robbie Collin A shimmering coup de cinema to make your heart burst, your mind swim and your soul roar.
Film Threat - 10/10 by Rick Kisonak It's La Dolce Vita for the 21st century, of course. But, more than that, it's the rare work that not only tips its hat to a masterpiece but sort of shockingly tops it.
Variety - 9/10 by Jay Weissberg Sorrentino continues to tackle major topics using an extraordinary combination of broad brushstrokes and minute detail. Passion via the intellect has become his trademark, well suited to this dissection of empty diversions, indulged in by latter-day Neros fiddling while Rome burns.
NPR - 9/10 by Ella Taylor 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.
