      Richard Porton Chicago Reader Unfortunately Sorrentino's often playful assault on genre conventions is sabotaged by an ostentatious visual style that alludes to the work of such disparate directors as Antonioni and Scorsese but is little more than a bag of empty tricks. Sep 29, 2017 Full Review Empire Magazine Rated: 4/5 Apr 1, 2006 Full Review PJ Nabarro Patrick Nabarro A story told as much through mood, sentiment and image than through a writer's more conventional tool of dramaturgy. Rated: 3/5 Dec 8, 2018 Full Review Brian Gibson Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Alberta) Sorrentino wins all bets we'll buy his film's more existential, literary, romantic ambitions because of the sheer ecstasy--the great beauty--of his style. Style becomes substance--the cuts and angles create narrative, the screen's surface opens up depths. Nov 17, 2014 Full Review Anton Bitel Eye for Film a tense, tragic portrait of a life suspended. Simply unmissable. Jul 3, 2007 Full Review Boyd van Hoeij european-films.net Two superfluous sub-plots notwithstanding, this atmospheric character study is clearly the work of a very talented filmmaker.

      Carla S Good enough. The irresistible temptation of self annihilation through romantic love and desire. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/24 Full Review Timur B Ok movie. Nothing especially special. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Liam D Paolo Sorrentino (Youth, Homemade) Psychological Thriller is an engaging and uniquely edited examination of an man's obsession, loneliness and the troubles he had Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/22 Full Review luca b Purtroppo la sceneggiatura ha un paio di svolte poco credibili, dal regalo in poi. Però visivamente bellissimo. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Sorrentino e Servillo al secondo film insieme, danno vita ad un ritratto molto originale di un uomo costretto ad una vita in carcere, pur essendo libero. La condizione del protagonista viene perfettamente riassunta con il solo utilizzo delle immagini e dei lunghi tempi di riflessione che esso si prende, mentre la vita gli scivola addosso. Una volta reso noto il contesto, si inizia ad inserire il personaggio femminile, che porta il protagonista a risvegliarsi dal suo torpore, per finire però in una situazione da cui non potrà risollevarsi. Finale ad altissimo impatto visivo ed emotivo che, nonostante io non abbia amato particolarmente il film, lo ha sicuramente riscattato. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Tony S A moody symbiose between noir and Italian mafia films. Great soundtrack and cinematography. Toni Servillo is excellent and you sort of understand, why Paolo Sorrentino continued to cast him in almost every movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/18/21 Full Review Read all reviews
