    A simple and straightforward film about two women falling in love. It’s so wonderfully filmed and performed that every banal moment becomes undeniably compelling and cinematic.

    Most of this film is a little dull and plodding and the obvious class-based context is one-note. However, the film’s final climax is as creepy and unsettling as anything from Cronenberg’s early films. Worth watching for that alone.

    No director embodies the films as dreams trope as well as Fellini. 8 1/2 is the ultimate evidence of that. This film creates a narrative in which dreams and reality exist side-by-side, each informed by the other. Images abound with eroticism and tropes of sadism and masochism. Though I personally find La Dolce Vita to be more entertaining, it's undeniable that 8 1/2'a visuals are the strongest of Fellini's black & white period.

    This would be a great movie for someone who hates movies and thinks that saying swears counts as a joke.
