The Great Beauty

Seen solo- at home. What I will remember about this movie- Jep, his creased face, his hair worn swept back, his cool demeanor as he realises he has no time in life for things he doesnt want to do anymore, as he strips bare artists and indulges, but never writes. That beautiful rooftop and Jep's relationship with his housekeeper. There are crazy images, beautiful, shocking, serene- it is a visual parade. The illusion of the giraffe disappearing and then his friend leaving Rome.
I don't want to answer what was the Great beauty he was seeking and never found. Let me find mine, 

I also want to remember how Jep decided he has no time in life for things he doesn't want to do anymore- like see pictures of a woman he just slept with. There is no more time, Knowing it has taken enough time already.
