Fellini's 8 1/2 @ The Egyptian
Screening tonight at 7:30 at the Egyptian in Hollywood is 8 1/2 (1963), winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and considered by many to be Fellini’s greatest masterpiece. The film stars the great Marcello Mastroianni as a very Fellini-like director trying to escape the self-made chaos of his artistic and personal lives at an Italian health spa, where he’s pursued by jealous mistresses, demanding producers and surreal fantasies of his own past, present and future.
