276) VACATION
(2015 dir. John Francis Daley, Jonathan M. Goldstein) Date Seen: July 29 2015

It took TWO directors to deliver this shit... Reflect on that for a bit..

I'm troubled by the idea of there being people who are actually nostalgic for this film series.

261) YOUTH
(2015 dir. Paolo Sorrentino) Date Seen: July 13 2015
We actually saw this abroad in Rome at the Intrastevere. A very small cinema tucked away between the Tiber river and Trastevere district.
I think it will be another hit for Sorrentino. It deserves to be. Feels like a spiritual counterpart to THE GREAT BEAUTY. With Michael Caine standing in for Toni Servillo.

NO UPDATES 7/8 - 7/18

Vado a vivere la dolce vita! 

Going on holiday in Rome, Italy for a stretch, so I will not be updating the Viewing Journal until I'm back. Until then, enjoy this iconic sequence from Fellini's LA DOLCE VITA (1960)!
