8 1/2Otto e mezzo Baz Luhrmann Selects
In Federico Fellini’s awe-inspiring magnum opus, an Italian film director probes his own life and dreams in the struggle to make his new film, despite not knowing what it’s actually about.
Marcello Mastroianni stars as Guido, a film director grappling with creative block. Caught in a web between his wife, mistress and his epic sci-fi film project, he retreats into the recesses of his mind. Considered one of the best films about filmmaking, Fellini takes his own artistic crisis and spins it into a dizzying, magical epic.
