A film of fine art!

Wow!! This is an absolutely fantastic masterpiece from such a legendary director. 8 ½ is one of the weirdest films ever but I have seen weirder ones though. 8 ½ is a beautifully filmed story with very mixed feelings. It is a very dark story that is even psychological on occasions especially of what Guido goes into with the visions and fantasies he has. It is like a dark film-noir film but it isn... read more

This movie tells a story about film director Guido Anselmi who is suffering from director's block. Main character who is played by Marcello Mastroianni doesn't get inspiration and because of that is anxious. He has no script for his movie. Actresses demand informations about their roles but there isn't any. The fuss keeps going on around the poor director who hasn't got a clue about the movie he i... read more

"I thought my ideas were so clear. I wanted to make an honest film. No lies whatsoever. I thought I had something so simple to say. Something useful to everybody. A film that could help bury forever all those dead things we carry within ourselves. Instead, I'm the one without the courage to bury anything at all. When did I go wrong? I really have nothing to say, but I want to say it all the same."... read more

8½ is about Guido Anselmi, an Italian director who has lost all inspiration for his upcoming movie, and it's too late to back out. And aside from the fact that he can't make the film, his mistress, wife, producer, and all the rest of his friends, are pressuring him about one thing or another. So he retreats into his dreams to shelter himself from the pressure, and there, he finds inspiration to make his new film, and face the world.

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1960's) (153 movies items)

" Notes: One of my goals was to watch the greatest movies ever made but, to be honest, watching a classic doesn’t mean necessarily that you will actually love it. Indeed, one of the biggest problems I had with watching classics is that I would hear about them for so many years and, at some point, I would finally have the opportunity to see them. But, in some cases, my expectations were just so high and after fantasizing about the damned thing for so long, the end result would sometimes turn ou"
