A film director who looks like Fellini tries to make a film but can’t, except that here is the result: Fellini’s roughly eighth-and-a-half film. Convoluted and self-reflexive, 8½ develops as the ultimate art movie, but is above all an extraordinary evocation of unbearable restlessness, finally giving way to the joy of going with the flow.
8½ was voted number three in the 2002 Sight & Sound Directors’ Poll of the Top Ten Best Films of all time.
8½, dir. Federico Fellini, Italy/France 1963,139 mins., Italian/English/French/German with English subtitles.
