Fellini triumphantly conjured himself out of a bad case of creative block with this magnum opus about a film director experiencing creative block.

Drama 1963 138 mins

Director: Federico Fellini

Overview

Taking its title from the number of films Fellini had completed up to this point, 8½ features Guido being besieged by sycophants and collaborators as he struggles to get started on an unwieldy science-fiction epic. Frequently digressing into surreal and erotic dream sequences, Fellini’s self-reflexive movie about movie-making climaxes with an exuberant parade.
