La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty)

Directed by Paolo Sorrentino

This is one of those rare films that make you sit in awe and think “How the fuck did they pull this off?” The film is a unique experience in itself, playing out over two hours in a series of tableaux touching on every facet of modern life: love, spirituality, time, power, status etc. It’s a very dense film but incredibly rewarding. The cinematography flies around like no tomorrow. This is what the Great Gatsby could have been, but can and will never, because The Grand Beauty stands as it’s own.
