Paolo Sorrentino’s (Il Divo, The Consequences of Love) deliriously entertaining new film plays out like a modern La Dolce Vita. Sorrentino regular Toni Servillo – whose entrance in the film is worth the price of admission alone – plays Jep Gambardella, a once acclaimed novelist-turned-columnist, through whose world-weary eyes we witness the decadence of a bankrupt culture consuming itself. The result is a brilliant, stunningly shot satire of life in Berlusconi’s Italy.
