8½

★★★★★

Another one off the list of shame.

My first Fellini and god it's so clear how this influenced so much stuff I've seen.

Weaving in and out of dreams, exploring insecurities, harnessing impulses of rage, and fighting back at lashing projections like taming a circus lion. At points it felt like I was watching some of Michel Gondry's unreleased work from an alternate universe.

Also holy shit Barbara Steele was absolutely beautiful.
