AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Loro uses the larger-than-life exploits of an infamous public figure to present a messily compelling snapshot of how power attracts -- and corrupts.

Movie Info

Seduction, glamour, corruption, drugs and raucous poolside parties: the life and times of scandal-plagued Silvio Berlusconi have long-demanded a screen depiction, and who else to deliver it than Paolo Sorrentino, the Academy Award-winning director of The Great Beauty and The Young Pope, who returns to cinema in spectacular fashion with this dazzling, topical and no-holds-barred look at life in Italy under the glistening eye of modern Europe's most infamous politician. With LORO, Sorrentino gradually unpeels the complex personality and motivations of the billionaire former Prime Minister - played with unmistakable panache by Toni Servillo - during a tumultuous period in his career, as his marriage to second wife Veronica Lario (Elena Sofia Ricci) fractures; all the while skilfully threading together stories of a wide variety of characters from multiple levels of society and their attempts to either ingratiate or distance themselves from him... Boldly and controversially speculating on what may or may not have taken place behind closed doors, LORO (which translates as 'Them') offers a timely commentary on the excesses and follies of the power-hungry.

Critic Reviews for Loro

All Critics (69) | Top Critics (18)

This sometimes beguiling but more often strangely engineered movie continues, stretching its increasingly muddy soup of gleaming nastiness and gaudy power plays until even the central portrait of the man himself is more cartoonish than corrosive.

For all of Sorrentino's prodigious gifts as a scenarist, "Loro" is a disturbing movie, for all the wrong reasons and, despite its self-consciously arty pretensions, a breathtakingly callow one.

Loro feels like the work of a more mature artist.

September 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Loro made me feel dirty, and I can't wait to see it again.

September 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Sorrentino's stylish but overloaded satire is less sober narrative than drunken tone poem - a buzzing, throbbing attempt to simulate the experience of living in Berlusconi-world.

Top Critic

That up-close mystery, the endless, aggressive, triumphal flaunting of one's own emptiness, seems to hold an enduring fascination for Sorrentino, and that's the strength of the film, as well as its weakness, at least as a political work.
