Amarcord ★★★★

Did not expect to like this at all, and I was happily surprised. Funny, heartfelt, and incredibly well crafted it's hard to knock this movie for much. In 8 1/2 I didn't really care for the fantastical dream sequences but here they were fun and often funny, while imo giving us a genuinely better look at the characters and their thoughts. This is a lovely little town full of lovely people, and if it weren't for the fascism (which the film does make fun of mind you) one of the last lines "How will you live so far from here" would really resonate with me. A great film to be sure.
