Loro Reviews

October 18, 2019
[Toni] Servillo delivers another masterful performance and [Paolo] Sorrentino paves the movie with the kind of images that seduce, reveal and create their own sense of mystery.

Loro is one of the most devastatingly beautiful films of recent years.
October 4, 2019
Paolo [Sorrentino]'s films are full of beauty and decadence... In this particular instance, the decadence owes to this actual man who was actually decadent.
September 27, 2019
Loro is a highly-stylized, unabashedly exuberant, gorgeous mess of a film.
September 23, 2019
[Toni Servillo's] performance is at once a recreation of the [Silvio] Berlusconi people know domestically as well as internationally and a farcical rebuke of everything he stands for. It's satire of highest contempt.
September 21, 2019
There is something inherently fascinating about watching power corrupt, and "Loro" understands that, often quite perceptively.
September 20, 2019
It's a sprawling, sometimes psychedelic, sinister depiction of the lengths that people will go to in order to infiltrate the politician's inner circle.
September 20, 2019
Loro feels like the work of a more mature artist.
September 20, 2019
Loro made me feel dirty, and I can't wait to see it again.
September 19, 2019
That up-close mystery, the endless, aggressive, triumphal flaunting of one's own emptiness, seems to hold an enduring fascination for Sorrentino, and that's the strength of the film, as well as its weakness, at least as a political work.
September 19, 2019
Loro has a ton of style and effective performances across the board.
September 18, 2019
Pitched halfway between parody and exposé, it offers a fine model for the only approach that's likely to be effective: crafting a movie that goes just as shamelessly over the top as did the man himself.
July 7, 2019
Filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino takes a heady trip through the A-B-C of decadence that constituted Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's lurid private life.
June 5, 2019
A fascinating interpretation of what has driven Berlusconi to such feverish success, that desperate need to constantly underline his accomplishments and his status of an undisputedly powerful and virile man.
April 25, 2019
It's packed with brilliant filmmaking touches and carries a strong kick.
April 23, 2019
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.
April 21, 2019
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.
