"I really have nothing to say, but I want to say it anyway..."

Guido is a beloved Italian movie director who winds up lost inside his own dreams, nostalgic memories and fantasies rather than concentrate on his new sci-fi epic. A creative block sends him spiraling inside his own mind. You are not always certain which of these you are viewing at any time, or if any of it is real.
It's masterful storytelling, and challenges you while it entertains you. Beautiful and cinematic, 8 1/2 has grown in its esteemed status steadily over the years.
