Federico Fellini’s 8 1/2 (Otto e Mezzo) transforms one man’s artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema. Guido Anselmi (Marcello Mastroianni) is a director whose personal and professional life is collapsing around him. An early working title for the film was La Bella Confusione (The Beautiful Confusion), and Fellini’s masterpiece is exactly that: a fantasy, a spectacle, and a glittering magic act.
