Four-Star Films : '8 1/2'

June 23, 1996|Michael Wilmington

In Federico Fellini's captivating 1963 film, a famous screen director, suffering massive creative blocks on his latest production, tumbles through a vortex of dreams, memories and nightmares as he tries to sort out the toils of life and art. This quintessential Fellini film--with Marcello Mastroianni (pictured) as a thinly disguised prototype of the director--also features Claudia Cardinale, Anouk Aimee and Sandra Milo among the director's harem. It also boasts a lilting score by Fellini regular Nino Rota (TMC Sunday at 7:30 a.m. and 6:40 p.m.).
