    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. 6 years 9 months ago

    This touched me in so many different ways (lol). With ease the best film of the decade so far. 5 years 11 months 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.
