There are few public figures as ripe for a biopic as Silvio Berlusconi, and few filmmakers better equipped to take that particular portrait on as Paolo Sorrentino in LORO. Jim Ross reviews at Glasgow Film Festival.
YOUTH is a decadent representation of how, in the frantic run towards the future, it’s easy to forget to live mindfully in the present, writes Federica Roberti.
Sorrentino’s corrupt, shameless Rome establishes a chokehold of gratuitous hedonism which it refuses to release for the film’s duration.
Paolo Sorrentino’s study of an eccentric is a portrait of a deeply unlikeable character’s awakening in a cynical and self-indulgent film, says Lillie Davidson.
