Fellini Satyricon back to product details

The often used cliche, "I feel like I'm in something out of a Fellini movie!" comes from this masterpiece. This tale is less about plot and more about the visceral experience hes built. The movie is set in an abstract interpretation of ancient rome. Each scene has a rich set, BEAUTIFUL actors, some level of sexuality (including plenty 'o homosexuality and bisexuality). Watching his movie is like watching theater, replete with theatrical makeup and costume. The only thing that differences it from theater is the cinematography, with a camera that zooms among the countless extras, each of which directed to make some sort of expression directly into the camera. Its perhaps the hardest movie to explain, but I will say that this is an utter masterpiece for the person that can appreciate abstract cinema, absurd and unconnected dialouge, and the epiotme of the "art film," done right.
It funny, while watching this, to realize that this is the genre that "Barbarella" was modeled after. May I suggest watching it in spoken English since, a) the dubbing is so terrible in both languages, and b) the spoken english dubbing is closer to the original Italian than the more incomprehansible subtitles.
