Fellini’s Roma (Fellini, 1972): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 8.30pm

This film, which is also being shown on February 8th, 16th and 25th (link here), is part of the Federico Fellini season at BFI Southbank. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
An imaginative, highly personal travelogue and essay film by Federico Fellini (1972), one of his best works of this period. It features the filmmaker roaming around the Eternal City with his crew, musing about the recent and distant historical past, running into old chums and acquaintances (such as Anna Magnani and Gore Vidal), and occasionally indulging some flamboyant conceits for their own sake (e.g., the memorable ecclesiastical fashion show). As usual with Fellini, especially from the 70s on, spectacle tends to be everything.
