Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Young Pope

A bejewelled Rococo bore stretching Sorrentino’s tendency for surreal scene-blocking over coherence of narrative into an epic of halting, disjointed visual caprice. Yes it’s visually assured but the more interesting elements of reactionary religious belief drown in heavy welters of portentously misplaced musical cues, an even heavier backstory and piles of Vatican intrigue the like we’ve seen before.
