Regista dalla carriera saltabeccante, Soderbergh si lascia volentieri andare ad azzardi che non sempre è ben capace di padroneggiare. In questo caso, però, la sfida può dirsi vinta: non era certo semplice mettere in immagini la sceneggiatura di Richard LaGravenese tratta dalle memorie di Scott Thorson sul rapporto tra quest’ultimo e Liberace, a partire dalle idee preconcette che possono azzop... read more

Campy and frankly, a little pointless. Great acting but otherwise nothing from the plot engages the audience much.

Great.

It is one of those movies, when you expect it to be bad or mediocre but you end up having a great time.

It's tells the story of Liberace, a well known and famous pianist and entertainer, he lived a life of success and sexual perversion, he was known for his costumes and his candelabra (he came up with an idea of setting a candelabra above his piano), the movie didn't focus on his ar... read more

“It is one of those movies, when you expect it to be bad or mediocre but you end up having a great time.

It's tells the story of Liberace, a well known and famous pianist and entertainer, he lived a life of success and sexual perversion, he was known for his costumes and his candelabra (he came up with an idea of setting a candelabra above his piano), the movie didn't focus on his art, instead, it focused on his relationship with Scott Thorson (played by Matt Damon), and that's actually convenient because Scott Co-wrote this movie, the movie starts with Scott, he's a bisexual good looking guy who wants to be a veterinarian, and his friend introduced him to Liberace once, so Liberace offered Scott to come work for him as his assistant, and things evolve into a gay relationship.

Pur in un periodo di outing diffusi (e qualche anno dopo ‘I segreti di Brokeback Mountain’), nessuno negli Stati Uniti ha voluto produrre il film tranne la rete via cavo HBO – e difatti imdb lo cataloga come ‘TV Movie’ – con la conseguenza che la distribuzione in sala è stata riservata al resto del mondo: benché l’argomento non sia certo dei più edificant” read more

"For Steven Soderbergh's final film he couldn't get a studio to back it. Being told repeatedly the movie was 'too gay' HBO picked up. If you ask me the studios fucked up. Both Douglas and Damon are in top form. Soderbergh's qusi drama likes to bridge the gap between eccentric performer and geek show megalomaniac. I knew next to nothing about Liberace before watching the film nor did I have much interest. But its so well made, so well acted and written that its easy to get sucked into their decede"

"To possess in the physical world. // EXCELLENT, thematically rich, incredible performance-driven biopic that does everything it sets out to do exceedingly well. What a difficult tone to have achieved. Perfect pacing, and the impossible balance between exaggeration and honesty. Salud, Mr. Soderbergh."
