    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!

    A classic, juvenile case of money well wasted at the theater.

    ★★½

    Despite the visual splendour and despite (or precisely because of...?) all the marching & horse riding significant portions of this opulent, three hour epic felt static and anaemic. And like a waste of time & talent.

    Sorry, Akira.

    ★★★★

    A gorgeously shot film about the cruel choice between lingering love and decent decisions.
