    THE GREAT BEAUTY (dual-format Blu-ray and DVD edition)
    For decades, journalist Jep Gambardella has charmed and seduced his way through the glittering nightlife of Rome. Since the legendary success of his only novel, he has been a permanent fixture in the city’s literary and elite social circles. But on his sixty-fifth birthday, Jep unexpectedly finds himself taking stock of his life, turning his cutting wit on himself and his contemporaries, and looking past the lavish nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find Rome itself, in all its monumental glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty. Featuring sensuous cinematography, a lush score, and an award-winning central performance by the great Toni Servillo (Gomorrah), this transporting experience from the brilliant Italian director Paolo Sorrentino (Il divo) is a breathtaking Fellini-esque tale of decadence and lost love.

    I have just watched the Region B blu-ray of The Great Beauty having read reviews on other sites (why no review on HTF?). It is a masterpiece of cinema. It deals with the big issues - life, death, time, and relationships. Quite simply one of the best films I have ever seen.
