After seeing Federico
Fellini at his most tragic in La Strada earlier this week, you can catch him at his most
cynical, self-reflective, and satiric in 8-1/2 (1963; 2:30 + 5:15 + 8 pm). Marcello Mastroianni
serves as Fellini's persona in this dreamlike portrait of a director losing his
grip under the pressure of trying to come up with a new movie.
