Stealing Beauty Reviews

December 7, 2007
[A] hilariously inscrutable exercise in pseudo-profundity.
December 7, 2007
A civilized, mellow, and generally graceful chamber piece.

In contrasting the sexuality and rebellion of Lucy's generation with his own, Bertolucci clearly yearns to rekindle his creative spirit.
