5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece April 23 2014

I had to watch this movie twice in one weekend because on the first view I was so overwhelmed by the visuals I couldn't divert my eyes long enough to focus on the subtitles and I gave in to the "The Great Beauty" of it. Stunning cinematography of Rome and its most coveted views, an incredible performance by the actor (Toni Servillo) who had me caring for Jeb and his plight...

The lighting in this movie is unmatched in my experience. The chiaroscuro makes you feel as if you stepped inside a Caravaggio canvass.

Not for everyone! For those that appreciate the arts this movie is a must see. The right audience will watch this movie for years to come.

This is a piece of art in every sense of the word.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great contemporary Italian cinema May 9 2014
By FilmFan2010 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I watched 'Il Divo' by Paolo Sorrentino a while back, and was impressed. But 'The Great Beauty' is even a better film by this director, based on the DVD version that I saw.

There is much similarity between this film and the dated version, 'Roma' by Fellini. But visually this film is far superior, and deserves repeated viewing. To follow the dialogues by reading the subtitles is a demanding chore for me. Often I had to pause the film to know what was said. So a 2nd or 3rd viewing will be necessary for me to grasp all the philosophical discussions, some fairly relevant and entertaining, that took place. The protagonist played by Toni Servillo is top-notch, chain-smoking regardless.

In summary, this is a 'must' for all fans of Italian cinema.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love Fellini films, this is for you. May 27 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Jep Gambardella has reached his goal of being the king of night life in Rome. Guests dance with wild abandon at his parties. He prides himself on being able to turn other parties into failures. He is famous for writing a single prize-winning book, but the creative wellspring has dried up and he now makes his living writing interviews, often scathing, of celebrities. When the husband of his long-lost first love breaks the news of her death to him, Jep learns that he lost her despite her great love for him. He tries to recall beautiful memories of her, but can't. It is only after being assigned to interview a truly exceptional woman that he can begin to recover what he has lost. This colorful but slow-moving movie almost put me to sleep the first time I saw it. But by the third time, I was in rapt attention, struggling to find the possible meanings of scenes. In true Fellini style, the meaning is not just what the creators of the movie imagined. The beat of the dance and the haunting choral music entice the viewer to find a deeper meaning in his own life.
