Post 601 on 8.5

Actually it’s 8 1/2, Fellini’s 1963 film about a director who’s not sure how to proceed, juggling a wife and mistress, producers and writers, and all the others who want a piece of his time.  I very much enjoyed the DVD of the film, watching it once with the commentary and then again without.  I think I had only seen it once before, and I suspect the first viewing is in fact pretty confusing; only a closer study makes sense of the pieces.  Here’s what Roger Ebert has to say about the film.
