    Brilliantly sumptuous style that perfectly captures a society trapped in a circle of perennial self-indulgence, which stifles any meaningful human value. A portrait of utter decadence without become itself decadent is not an easy coup and Sorrentino's film fully succeeds in it by subtly maintaining a notion of human loss . A modern classic with many memorable, superbly imagined and executed scenes. 5 years 1 month ago

    Stunning story and cinematography. Lots of lush colours and a marvellous fluid camera. Great performances, too.

    I understand the comparisons to La Dolce Vita and 8 1/2, but I don't think that saying that this is better or worse than Fellini's works is quite fair. The similarities are there, but The Great Beauty is its own thing.

    Beautiful, stylish and lush cinematography with a very dreamlike narrative that guides you into a rich and poetic discourse about life, love and death. For some, however, it might come off as shallow, as the pretty surface to an empty shell, but I thought of it as both a gorgeous and thought-provoking film. 5 years 2 months ago
