It's packed with brilliant filmmaking touches and carries a strong kick.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Toni Servillo is perfection as Berlusconi right down to the transplanted hairline - a social chameleon, pathetically in denial that he's ageing and still wanting to party like a 20-year-old.

April 22, 2019
Loro's narrative gaps are a result of it originally being two films that have here been condensed into one 150-minute job. But between Servillo's brilliance...and Sorrentino's majestic scene orchestration, you may be too agog to notice.

April 22, 2019
As a character portrait, this film works: Servillo judges the amount of charm, bluster and oiliness just right. His Silvio slithers and fascinates, like a snake.

The film at times feels like a VR trip inside Berlusconi's mind.

April 19, 2019
By keeping Berlusconi in the wings, Sorrentino builds up the mystique of 'lui, lui' while also showing it to be a convenient excuse.
April 19, 2019
It's tonally all over the place, and significant characters disappear without warning. Yet the force and style of the storytelling, plus Toni Servillo's bravura performance as Berlusconi, often paper over those cracks.

Loro is messy, unfocussed, excessive, but often spellbinding.

Toni Servillo brilliant again as Sorrentino's singular Berlusconi,
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 19, 2019
Party politics abound in Paolo Sorrentino's imaginative portrait of Sergio Berlusconi as an ageing, empty salesman-cum-seducer.
April 18, 2019
Like Berlusconi himself, Loro is bloated and overstuffed, but Sorrentino's film is a compelling mixture of the whimsical and the sleazy, the hedonistic and the sad.

April 18, 2019
The performances are exceptional, the production values impeccable. But this version feels consistently hamstrung by its structural flaws and tonal misjudgements.

April 18, 2019
The mood has darkened irrevocably and the closing scenes of devastation at L'Aquila seem to point up something much bigger than Berlusconi, something sinister at the heart of Italian statehood.

Despite its uneven pacing and structure, there are individual moments that astound.

April 17, 2019
Loro drips with glittering artifice. What could be more Berlusconi?
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 17, 2019
Sometimes whimsical, sometimes gruellingly sordid, sometimes wayward in those Fellini-esque departures and dreamlike epiphanies of which Sorrentino has made himself such a master.

April 16, 2019
For a director obsessed with the decadence of Italy's most powerful, Loro feels like the film Paolo Sorrentino was born to make.
April 16, 2019
A damning indictment of the corruption, hypocrisy, vice and moral degradation within upper-class Italian society.
April 16, 2019
Loro is a sprawling, unexpectedly melancholy film. Sharply entertaining in places, it only seems to scratch the surface of a complex life and the country in which it flourished.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 15, 2019
It's easy to get lost in the Bacchanalian orgies, but at its heart 'Loro' is a fascinating exploration of what happens to a morally vacuous man as he grows old.
