La Dolce Vita

IMDB

(1960, Federico Fellini)

Surreal and dreamlike, but with a pessimistic worldview. This film broke Fellini worldwide, made a star out of Marcello Mastroianni and influenced several films since. Its wide scope includes reflections about sex, religion, fame, human relations and fear of death as well as the state of postwar Europe. It’s long, but enjoyable.

Classic European cinema, baby. And it’s now off of my Top 1000 list.

5.0/5.0
