Brandan Silcox’s review published on Letterboxd:
The original film about the craft of film making, and man can I say it’s the best!
There’s a lot of positive aspects that I could point to in regards to 8 1/2, so I’ll just briefly mention a few.
The best use of black & white visuals I’ve encountered (with the use of white being truly spectacular)
Artful depiction of the writing process or lack of it!
Deep dives into themes such as age, a persons flaws, internal vs external pressure etc.
Masterpiece of cinematography and innovative imagery
Go watch this it’s an absolute must see
