8½

Watching a near unanimously acclaimed and adored work of art and experiencing no range of emotion whatsoever and gaining nothing is among the most unpleasant film-related experiences I can imagine. That I was incredibly excited because it's a meta surrealist film about filmmaking does not alleviate the pain in any way. I find myself drained rather than invigorated. Damn this one hurts.
