Review: Youth, 2015, dir. Paolo Sorrentino


“Don’t let the title of Paolo Sorrentino’s new film fool you: he’s playing coy.Youth is not about young people at all, but rather a pair of sad old wrinklies who sit around at a spa mourning the loss of their youth, as well as the divisions between parents and their children, the death of the movies, the toil of making art, boredom, apathy, depression, and any number of other disparate themes. Basically, Sorrentino used the spaghetti wall test to pick his ideas without bothering to discard any undercooked strands of pasta.” (Via Birth.Movies.Death.)
