The Great Beauty was a great disappointment. The opening scene was overly loud and trashy and then just got into some weird territory. It’s not even the fun kind of weird, it’s the long, overdrawn gouge your eyes out with a spork weird. This is also another film to add to my “Movies about writers that I hate” category. Writers love to write movies about being writers. It’s so egocentric and overdone. Very few of them succeed as being entertaining. If you want weird dance parties and crawling Nuns, you found your movie. Otherwise avoid this like you would running headfirst into a brick wall.
