The Great Beauty boils over with shapeless disdain, aimed everywhere but where it should be

Slant Magazine

Paolo Sorrentino's film is really just a huge turn-on that has the bad manners to go sour, succumbing to its own self-delusions of moral/political grandeur.

There's little to discover in Paolo Sorrentino's satiric vision of Rome, except perhaps, that some cities just look better than others while entertaining themselves to hell.

For all its high-brow posturing, this film is tedious.

As a parody of Italian cinema, it's tedious. Except we're supposed to be taking this seriously. As if.

The city looks good enough to dive into. If only the humans in the frame weren't so shallow.

The melancholy in this film is just as trumped up as the frenzy.

Paolo Sorrentino's overwrought, Felliniesque opus ...

Sorrentino has managed to build a loving and distinctive work on the foundation of an indolent, often self-loathing social strata.

Film Comment Magazine

In blatant reference to La dolce vita, The Great Beauty is an apt if lazily postmodern response to Fellini's question: how can we convert nihilism from an existential plague into a decent way of life?

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

We Got This Covered

Beneath the beautiful surface and indulgence of Sorrentino's The Great Beauty, there is an insightful, intriguing satire about what it means to create art that elevates itself beyond shallow eye candy.

The film is defiantly short on structure, but the beautiful chaos is so chaotically beautiful that only the surliest viewer will think to complain.

Montreal Gazette

Borrowing liberally from the spirit of famed countryman Federico Fellini's 1960 classic La Dolce Vita, Sorrentino emerges with an existential fantasy steeped in Italy's rich cinematic history, with feet firmly planted in the present.

Sumptuous and self-indulgent, Sorrentino's latest is a Fellini-like feast for the eyes.

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

Though there's precious little drama, Sorrentino's skills as an image-maker are indisputable.
