And people living that life are trying to find a way to distract themselves, with gossip, being frivolous, going to stupid parties and all that." PHOTOS: Behind the scenes of movies and TV Though his previous film 2011's English-language "This Must Be the Place" in which a gothed-out Sean Penn played a rock star turned Nazi hunter cost more to make, Sorrentino declared "The Great Beauty" to be his most ambitious film. (The new film was made for between $12 million and $13 million, a healthy budget for a contemporary Italian film.) It was Sorrentino's most successful film yet at the Italian box office. The opening party sequence alone required some 300 extras a night over three nights of shooting. A lot was spent on the film's spectacular locations, such as Jep's apartment overlooking the Colosseum. Servillo's dazzling outfits were made by the top Naples tailoring firm of Cesare Attolini. (And he got to keep them.) Luca Bigazzi, the director's longtime cinematographer, shot the film on the lush crispness of 35mm film "for the last time in my life," Sorrentino sadly noted adding perhaps to the film's end-of-times mournfulness. Sorrentino acknowledged that the outsized gestures of his visual style as also demonstrated in his vividly dense 2008 film "Il Divo," which starred Servillo as seven-time Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti are out of step with trends on the international art house circuit.

Each week, she takes a simple self-portrait from the waist up, shirtless, documenting the effects of cancer treatment on her body. In a shot from the first week of chemo, her wavy red hair hangs cape-like over her shoulders. In a shot from Week 16, the end of chemo, no hair remains, exposing a prominent bump under her right collar bone, the implanted port where intravenous lines attach. ** Blog post excerpt, Oct. 8: "...The basis of the Finding Beauty in Cancer project was that I get a blank canvas from which to recreate. I thought that meant my body and how I look. However, I've found it's much more than the blank canvas of body. It's a blank slate of meaning. I get to choose what has meaning in my life. From the smallest detail to the largest concept. I choose what is important, what is stressful, what gets my time attention. Everything gets stripped down to a few essentials people and relationships. Family, friends, community, world. People, minds, souls. Words. Transgressions and quarrels are forgiven. They don't matter. Love and being present for one another matters.
