Amarcord (Fellini, 1973)

Criterion improves on their previous release of Amarcord with a nice Blu-ray disc, which I had the pleasure of reviewing for Slant. Not my favorite Fellini by a long shot (that honor would go to La Strada or Nights of Cabiria), but still fascinating for many reasons. Multiple viewings really help clarify what Fellini’s trying to accomplish with this strange mosaic of vibrant colors, emotional outbursts, rampant sexuality, and brutal fascism.
