REVIEW ROUNDUP: GRETA AND LORO

Two new releases are at the Irish Film Institute now: Greta and Loro.

Read on for a selection of reviews, or pop in to make up your own mind.

GRETA
“Neil Jordan’s lightest, darkest film in years”
4/5 – Irish Times

“Jordan knows what he’s doing; the goofiness is a feature, not a bug.”
Guardian

“Jordan squeezes the plot for every ounce of campy, disreputable fun”
Rolling Stone

“Falls squarely in B movie territory but, by virtue of its two lead performers, winds up being far more enjoyable than it has any right to be.”
Variety

“While the movie is impossible to take seriously, it’s also hard to resist, like an unattended bag on the subway that’s just begging you to look inside.”
New York Times

LORO
“It’s easy to get lost in the Bacchanalian orgies, but at its heart ‘Loro’ is a fascinating exploration of what happens to a morally vacuous man as he grows old.”
4/5 – Time Out

“A richly inventive, ferocious feast of satire and vulgarity.”
Hollywood Reporter

“Loro is the definitive Paolo Sorrentino film to date. It’s brash, stylish, and silly. It oscillates back and forth between horny and human, profound and misguided. It’s a glorious mess.”
The Wrap
