Totally understand why this is considered one of the best films of all time. Fellini creates a mood and story that ripples into all modern cinema. A delicate, hilarious balance of reality and fantasy, Fellini is able to generate a brooding hilarity of existentialism and memory. The whole movie banks on our relationship to our calling and how love, family, motivation, distraction, and passion all flicker and wane on a dime. A true masterpiece. Totally essential to any filmmaker and classics lover.
