film profile] by Paolo Sorrentino are among the best films of the decade according to the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA), which included the two films in its list of 189 titles (with, respectively, 21.5 and 5.5 points).
Released in the US last May, Il Divo won over American critics. Compared to Scorsese and Coppola by The New York Times, Sorrentino was deemed a director of “some of the most stylistically exciting films of recent years” by New York Magazine. The film was recently included in the top ten foreign-language films of 2009 by Los Angeles Times critic Kenneth Turan and won Best Foreign Film from the San Diego Film Critics Society.
