Essential Cinema  8 ½ Fellinis Presented by MUBI

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

“Federico Fellini manages to accomplish with film what mostly abstract painters do – namely, to communicate emotion without ever saying or showing anything in a direct manner, without ever explaining anything, just by a sort of sheer magic.”
—David Lynch

When people use the adjective Felliniesque, they are often referring to the highly colorful, stylized and surreal aesthetic of JULIET OF THE SPIRITS. Giuletta Masina returns, playing the bored wife of an inattentive and unfaithful husband. The film presents her fantasies of a more fulfilling life. Massively influential and still a joy to watch.
