Mixed the colors of reality with the surreal

And leavened psychology with sex appeal.

La Dolce Vita (1960) Federico Fellini follows a week in the life of a philandering paparazzo journalist living in Rome played by Marcello Mastroianni

  • Wonderful post, AW! I love Amarcord and Nights of Cabiria. But I have never seen 8-1/2--now you have inspired me. Thank you!

  • Thank you. I don't think of films in terms of directors very often, but I think I can learn here.

  • Two headlines that should be in your wheelhouse (but I couldn't get past the second line):

    New Bears GM Ryan Poles
    Must deal with the contract of Nick Foles

    Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer
    Set to retire.
