Considered to be one of the greatest films ever made, and Fellini’s crowning masterpiece, 8½ is a mesmerizing, dream-like escapade. Troubled Italian filmmaker Guido Anselmi struggles with creative status as he attempts to get his new movie off the ground. Overwhelmed by his life, he retreats into his thoughts and memories: past, present, fantasy and love. 8½’s combining of imaginative surrealism and reality has gone on to secure its creative potency in film history.
