This isn't really a review. I'm not going to give much away. It's just a movie I watched a little while ago at Rialto with my sister after dinner at Mexico. A combination I recommend by the way.
I thought this movie was great! It's set among the 'high life' in Rome. I had no idea what to expect. It's an Italian subtitled movie and won some awards which was enough to convince us to see it haha. It touches on loads of really interesting concepts specifically related to artistic expression. I love when everything in a movie is meant to be in it. Whether it was a scene to build the character or to explain something significant later on. There is no 'telling' in the script which is a pet hate of mine. The acting is also superb, the main character is played by Toni Servillo, and it's directed by Paolo Sorrentino.
So yeah, go watch it. Hopefully it's still on at Rialto and you might be able to track it down if you're out of Auckland.
Also, I'm just going to post things I feel like posting haha. I enjoy updating this blog but I've been finding old ideas mundane lately so I'm swinging in a different direction. Who really knows where I'll go with this, I have no idea.
