Movie Reviews

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.
Hollywood Reporter - 10/10 by Deborah Young Referencing without imitating Fellini, Sorrentino offers an amusing update on Italian society at the end of a cycle.
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.
Quickflix - 10/10 by Glenn Dunks The title is about as spot on as you can get and this is ultimately a film that raises the search for beauty in this world to a stylish art.
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.
Flicks.co.nz - 10/10 by Rebecca Barry Hill A spectacular film, as messy, strange and funny as a dream, with hedonistic party scenes to rival The Great Gatsby.
New York Magazine/Vulture - 10/10 by Bilge Ebiri The Great Beauty is a subtly daring cinematic high-wire act - an entire film built around one character's unrealized, unspecified yearning. And it might just be the most unforgettable film of the year.
FILMINK (Australia) - 10/10 by Sarah Ward Sorrentino's film may flit between vignettes of extravagance and eccentricity, but more is always toiling underneath.
Seven Days - 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.
Time Out - 10/10 by Dave Calhoun Sorrentino is so often compared to Fellini that it feels right that he has made the city of 'La Dolce Vita' the focus for this heady, beautiful, entrancing film.
TIME Magazine - 10/10 by Richard and Mary Corliss [Sorrentino] stuffs, nearly engorges, this 2 hour-and-20-minute film with outrageous and gloriously visual anecdotes.
Common Sense Media - 10/10 by Renee Schonfeld Exceptional, mature film dazzles, offers haunting insights.
