8 ½ (1963)
Trying to relax after his last big hit, harried film director Guido retreats into his own private world of memories and fantasies. Wrestling with his conscience Guido recalls past workers seeking more work, major victories and defeats, and the women he loved…and left. This avant-garde classic is considered to be semi-autobiographical, and Fellini’s personal take on the trials and perils of film making. It was the basis for the Broadway musical and subsequent film, ‘Nine’.
