To all latent and blatant misogynists out there I say this:
Show me on the doll where Ghostbusters hurt you.
This was requisite kick-nuts fun with a great cast of which I'd like to see more. Bring on Part II!
You just got Holtzmanned, baby!
In an ever more intensifying atmosphere of denunciation & distrust caused by anonymous, libelous letters the composition of a small rural town & its people crumbles.
Although cinematically very well executed it's a tough film to watch because virtually no one is getting away unscathed as bigotry & hypocrisy are laid bare and the all-out "blame game" practically destroys the community's social construct. It's more than noteworthy that Clouzot got this film made under contract of a German film company in Nazi occupied France...
A remarkable movie.
My first encounter with Fellini. His eighth & a half contribution to filmdom and a breathtaking, one-of-a-kind experience. This tour de force of the professional & personal crisis as well as fantasies & formative memories of an Italian movie director who's trying to get his next project off the ground is a delirious, life-infused metamovie that's dramatically & artistically firing on all cylinders. And it's a magical marvel to behold how all the fragments & figments form an unforgettable film. Bravo!
