I can't even clown on Fellini he made something special
the cinematography in this film really something else
Amazingly surreal. Unlike anything else. True classic
When Italy was able to make great movies.Worth it
Beautiful, self referencing cinematic masterpiece
I’ll echo what everyone else says, should be seen by every film student so they can feel superior to people who don’t watch foreign films.
One of the best Italian films of all time. This movie isn't afraid to get surreal as it dives into the mind of a struggling director.
Fellini shows genius in his portrayal a filmmaker (Mastroianni). Surreal flashbacks and dreams of fantasy.
The plots and ideas trample over each other so rampantly that it's a miracle this film still came out perfectly
Fellini captures a film director's psyche thru surreal, dream sequences. One of the greats. W. Allen did his version with Stardust Memories
