8 1/2

Putting an end to one of the most obscene holes in my knowledge of the cinema, I watched Fellini's 8 1/2 last night. Wow. I think it's probably Fellini's "best" film. Honestly, I like La Dolce Vita more. That's the one I would prefer to have in my own film library. It really hits me on more layers personally, and I like that it's more morally and emotionally ambiguous. You can watch it many times and read it in different ways. And of course it's generally an excellent film in a host of ways. But as a piece of film-making it's hard to equal, much less top, 8 1/2.
