1001 Movies Club - 8 1/2 (1963)
#400. 8½ (1963)
Why It's In The Book: "The picture stands as a testimony to an icon of the European baroque at the midpoint of the 20th century. It is also one of the most brilliant, imaginative and funny movies of its time... The film represents a major step forward in cinema's march toward modernity, one of the most inventive constructions of a mirror reflection on the creative act itself... 8½ does not elaborate a thesis on the state of the art or engage in psychoanalytic investigation. instead, it opens a window inside each and every one of us, artistic or not, man or woman." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
"The movie is slow, it is quirky, it is fantasy-laden, it is delirious, it is philosophical, it is disconcerting, it is even disparaging at times, but it is also unique and splendid."
Adolytsi - 9/10
"8 1/2 is Fellini's Annie Hall; the one film just about everyone cites as their favorite of the director's work, and like Annie Hall, I have joined this particular collective."
"With the recent failure of the screen adaptation of Nine, I think it's twice as important to see 8½. It's required viewing for cinema buffs and one that they shouldn't dread. It's a insightful, intriguing and ultimately a very satisfying film watching experience"
Fey - 9/10
"As I have always been a fan of brevity and with the central themes of this film in mind, I present you with my 8 and 1/2 word movie review."
Johnlgilpatrick - 7/10
"I think the title might refer to the number of viewings required before you can truly appreciate what's onscreen."
Kim Wilson - 7/10
"Overall, 8 1/2 is not my favorite Fellini endeavor. I don't hate it, but I don't love it, either.""
"Its an experience and really does capture the idea of the creative struggle and while it lacks a truly coherent plot and may be a bit too deep for casual viewers, its a film that really does deserve to be watched."
Univarn - 7/10
"With striking visuals, unique perspective, and an intriguing narrative Fellini's 8½ has inspired countless films, all the while stuck in the minefield of an inaccessible main character, few will like, or care about."
Movie Guy Steve - 6/10
"...a film that is simultaneously important and feels like fluff, deep and meaningful and equally impenetrable.
"nothing so dreamlike and sexy in cinema"
Overall Rating: 7.7/10
