Fellini at 100: La Dolce Vita
This month marks the late Federico Fellini's 100th birthday. To celebrate il Maestro's centennial, we present some of the most influential and iconic films from his five decade career. Tonight we toast his sprawling satire La Dolce Vita (1960).
Marcello (Marcello Mastroianni) is a tabloid journalist who finds himself adrift in the glamour of Roman high society. After his girlfriend's overdose, Marcello is torn between aimless hedonism and the aching need for something truer, pursuing romance with a wealthy heiress (Anouk Aimée) and a movie star (Anita Ekberg). Winner of the Palm d’Or at Cannes and widely-considered to be one of Fellini’s greatest achievements, La Dolce Vita is an alternately terrifying and fascinating fresco of post-economic miracle Rome. Following Marcello’s restless search for happiness through a funereal parade of parties and exotic nightlife, Fellini crafts a melancholy masterpiece. Watch the trailer.
Directed by Federico Fellini, 1960, Italy/France, 174 minutes. In Italian w/ English subtitles.
