Ha! The latest from Paolo Sorrentino is just like the last thing from Paolo Sorrentino--except it's in English this time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJmKymMFuhA

Michael Caine IS Toni Servillo!

Since I know you're just waiting for this scene and have no intention to watch the movie:

In my book, full frontal nudity is NSFWer than a blurred out butt.

Just did a re-watch. It's okay, nothing all that special. Paul Dano is sure annoying. 6/10.

Have you seen the young pope yet? (I still haven't managed to watch Youth in its entirety, it's too botched for me)

I don't see much TV. I suppose I'll get to it eventually (especially as Mrs. J loves Jude Law).

The worst things about Youth are the very writerly dialogues. You sit there listening to the actors, thinking, "It's bleedin' obvious that somebody wrote this. People don't talk this way in real life."

Not a single conversation is persuasive. Sorrentino's English isn't bad (I was at a Q&A with him recently and, although he brought an interpreter with him, he didn't rely on her and mostly answered everything directly), but not being a native user of the language hinders him when judging English in a film script. This is not a problem with his Italian-language films, of course.

I think it's even a bigger problem in Youth because it's one of his most minimalistic movies. Few people, few locations. It's the closer he can go to My Diner With Andre (which, you will note, is still pretty far). And the closer you go to "2 actors sitting in a room and talking for 2 hours" (which isn't the defining mark of his usual cinema, although he alwas has quiet dialogue scenes here and there), the more normal sounding dialogues you need. If it makes sense.

Well, we agree. Is there now anywhere for this discussion to go?

Easy: you need to watch the young pope.
