This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Alienation from "the system" and urban ennui galore. Shown from the perspective of a woman makes this one all the more poignant & relevant.
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!
