"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.

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

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

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.

A mysterious, sensual prism through which to view our own shortcomings and longings.

I don't know that I've ever seen a film in which the visual glory on the screen was so at odds with the philosophy evident in the screenplay.

The Great Beauty (or, more wonderfully, La Grande Bellezza) is a memory play, a meditation on life, a celebration of the incidentals that make it joyous and more.

Ah, to be wealthy, gorgeous and dead inside in Rome!

For those of us who spend most of our time still dealing with rent and health care, it is a two-hour journey into ideas and emotions we only wish there were time to consider. That's a reason to go to the movies.

The Great Beauty will become one of those movies that will be discussed over and over again in future college courses.

Austin Chronicle

Wild set-pieces and rueful observations are the stock in trade of this Italian film by one of the modern masters of cinema, Paolo Sorrentino.

Sorrentino's film may flit between vignettes of extravagance and eccentricity, but more is always toiling underneath.

With inevitable debt to Fellini, Sorrentino's nods as reverential as they are wry.

I can't remember when a film last gave me such a surge of pure pleasure -- no, outright euphoria -- as The Great Beauty.

Tampa Bay Times

Cut from similarly sexy and satirical cloth as Federico Fellini's masterworks a half-century ago, Paolo Sorrentino's movie glides like reverie, probing the emptiness that can result from living a full life.

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.

A spectacular film, as messy, strange and funny as a dream, with hedonistic party scenes to rival The Great Gatsby.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The intelligently observed and staggeringly beautiful Italian foreign-language Oscar nominee is about life, death and the search for the things that give meaning to both.
