    Alienation from "the system" and urban ennui galore. Shown from the perspective of a woman makes this one all the more poignant & relevant.

    I Knew Her Well


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This is such a great portrait of time & place and most importantly its female character at the centre... you'll be able to share a wide range of emotions with her and yet ask yourself at the end: How well did I know her?

    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!
