La Dolce Vita, dir. Federico Fellini, Italy 1960, 176 min., Italian with English subtitles
Federico Fellini’s exquisite tale of celebrity casts an adoring yet critical eye towards '60s Rome. Set over seven decadent days, the film follows Marcello Mastroianni’s philandering journalist, pursuing a happiness that’s always just out of reach.
An all-time classic, La Dolce Vita is an enchanting fable of fame and folly.
