Dir. Federico Fellini. 1963, 138 mins. 35mm. With Marcello Mastroianni. Fellini’s greatest film, , is a carnivalesque portrait of a movie director that moves between the frenzy of real life on a movie seat and the director’s dream life. Marcello Mastroianni perfectly captures the bemused wonder of the film director, creating an indelible portrait of the artist as ringleader. A lavish fantasia rooted in personal experience, this is the fullest expression of Fellini’s desire to fuse realism and poetry.
