Sober Film Critic James Brown80 - In Youth, Paolo Sorrentino stays within his lane and does what he does best. With his trademark eye-popping aesthetics, yet another leading artist plagued by an unmistakable emptiness, and his usual oddball energy, Sorrentino certainly returns to the big screen in grand style.
