Federico who moves in with Riki ... only to realize that his brother's butt has had more visitors than the Catholic Church on Easter Sunday.

Writer/director/actor Filiberti, like his film, is highly watchable. He happens to be extremely photogenic and comfortable at whatever he is performing, even if it's only a dance in a male strip club.

This clumsy, self-indulgent film veers from comedy to tragedy and is told in flashbacks, with treacly diary entries and unconvincing 'testimonies' from friends providing a window into the past.

There is little for an American audience to adore about the film's star- writer-director Marco Filiberti, a breathtakingly self-idolatrous artist who makes Roberto Benigni look like an avatar of humility.

A vanity project so preposterous it deserves to become an instant camp hit.

An unfortunate exercise in ego run amok, coupled with inexperience and ineptitude.

Judging by Adored, the Italian singer, actor and filmmaker Marco Filiberti has the healthiest ego in Europe, if not the known universe.

May 25, 2004
The film's witlessness keeps any satirical potential submerged well below soap opera levels.
May 21, 2004
The story plays more like a young man's passing daydream of offbeat glory than a drama with realistic bite.

Drips with that element that has turned countless gay films into dour endurance tests: navel-gazing self-pity.

[Marco Filiberti] has lots on his mind and much in his heart, and as a filmmaker displays a Douglas Sirkian flair for finding substance in melodrama.

This feeble comedy-tragedy has Sirkian aspirations but never misses an opportunity to settle for being flesh-friendly gay-film-festival fodder.
