9. The Great Beauty

The Great Beauty
Directed by Paolo Sorrentino
This is a nostalgic film, but good nostalgic. whose political satire, views modern Rome in all its excess through the jaded eyes of “the king of the socialites,” journalist Jep Gambardella and, further back, more than a half-century, to the Eternal City as seen by Federico Fellini in La Dolce Vita. This cinematic achievement gives even the cynics a faith in the vibrancy of movies. The Great Beauty feels like the year’s grandest, most exhilarating film that takes place on Earth.
