La Grande Bellezza
Italy | 2013 | Paolo Sorrentino
The acclaimed new movie from the director of last year's Cinematheque hit This Must Be the Place (with Sean Penn as a retired rock star) is one of the five nominees for this year’s Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. It previously won the Golden Globe Award in that category, as well as the 2013 European Film Awards for Best Film, Director, and Actor! The Great Beauty finds filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino back in his native Italy, and working again with his chameleonic Il Divo star, Toni Servillo. Here Servillo loses himself in the role of Jep Gambardella, a one-time literary lion turned jaded journalist in Rome, who squanders his life partying with the super rich and being seen with celebrities. But now this world-weary cynic and sensualist senses the emptiness of his existence, so scours his life for something authentic. This flamboyant La Dolce Vita update is intoxicatingly rendered with an ever-roaming (Rome-ing?) camera and wall-to-wall music. It’s a vibrantly colored x-ray that reveals Berlusconi's Italy to be stylish and seductive, but also superficial and soulless. "A fantastic journey around contemporary Rome and a riot of lush imagery juggling past and present, sacred and profane, gorgeous and grotesque." -NPR.
