    This had the texture of a Tarkovsky film and struck in exactly the right way. Joanna Hogg is clearly one of the best.

    "He's our protector and he always helped us and everything we have today we owe to him."

    This felt like a 90 minute pitch for a new religion.


    Thank you.

    My Dad gave me a collection of DVDs of his all time favourite films, and he also wrote a little bit on each DVD. This is what he wrote about Frederico Fellini's '8 1/2'.

    The most 'personal' film I've seen - where the role of the director as an artist was central. A disjointed free-flow of ideas which, as Scorsese said, follows the process of creativity - focusing on film-making within a corporation. The struggle towards creation is right.
