The Great Beauty Reviews
All the things we say or do to shut the voices in our heads, thinking: we're doing great, we're getting somewhere, we're earning "something", we're in love, we're being loved, we're successful, we're popular, we have friends, we're not alone.... All this is but Blah blah blah!
No one cares about who you really are or how you really feel; not even you!
After all, it's just a trick... to make it all go away...
Filled with unforgettable cinematography & some of the most gorgeous & lush photography of the city of Rome itself.
Jep's honesty & reflective look at his self & his current state of emptiness is intriguing. The people that populate his journey are fascinating, and you really see how empty a life of chasing status can be.
This movie reminds me of Bono. It thinks it's more poignant than it actually is.
But I still go for the Missing Picture.
