Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 121: Fri May 1

8½ (Fellini, 1963): BFI Southbank, NFT2 2.30pm + NFT1 5.40 & 8.25pm

This classic movie starts an extended run at BFI Southbank tonight. Full details of the dates here.

Chicago Reader review:
If what you know about this exuberant, self-regarding movie comes from its countless inferior imitations (from Mazursky’s Alex in Wonderland and The Pickle to Allen’s Stardust Memories to Fosse’s All That Jazz), you owe it to yourself to see Federico Fellini’s exhilarating, stocktaking original... It’s Fellini’s last black-and-white picture, and conceivably the most gorgeous and inventive thing he’s ever made — certainly more fun than anything he’s made since.
Jonathan Rosenbaum

Here (and above) is the new BFI trailer.
