    Easy needs to invest in a deadbolt. Or whatever the late 40s version of ADT was.

    This might be the most honest movie ever made. Fellini is making a movie about a director that is trying to make a movie about himself. And the director is clearly a Fellini self portrait.

    At the core it's a film about the claustrophobia involved in making a movie. The opening scene of him stuck in his smoking car that is packed in traffic with everybody starring at him perfectly invokes that. Then he flys away only to get pulled…

    All the fantastic imagery in the world can't save you from a single note, boring movie. And the imagery was fantastic.

    This movie is like listening to a song where the drummer is killing it, vocals are spot on, the base is solid, but the lead guitarist is playing just a G chord the whole way through.
