a toss up between i vitteloni and juliet of the spirits
Nights of Cabiria.
Fellini’s “I Clowns” … can this be found on DVD…? …Criterion are you listening..?
I’m still catching up on some of his work but I love La Strada and would be very impressed, and pleased, if he has another film to match that and the aforementioned pair above
Nights of Cabria, Fellini Satyricon, Casanova.
Oh and above all, Toby Dammit.
Definitely Mafioso. Ooops…that was by Lattuada.
So, my vote is a tie between I Vitelloni and Nights of Cabiria. Both films are less accomplished on the surface than Dolce and 8 1/2, but far more enjoyable upon repeated viewings. (And while it’s more painful to watch than Vitelloni or Cabiria, I’d say La Strada shares their merits.)
Too, And the Ship Sails On falls short of Fellini’s 60’s masterpeices, but deserves much more credit than it tends to get. Give it a watch if you haven’t gotten around to it; it’s a real blast.
I guess La Strada, but what’s the point?
I VITELLONI or AMARCORD
I Vitelloni, followed closely by Nights Of Cabiria.
Satyricon and Amarcord
I want to hug Juliet of the Spirits, and it’s later American remake Drop Dead Fred. Satyricon is really cool too.
Nights of Cabiriba
Q: Would anyone happen to know if the box set of La Dolce Vita is worth the price?
I already own the film but I’d like to have the set if it’s worth it.
i got to see amarcord at the film forum recently, and it was wonderful. i took my girlfriend who had only ever seen 8 1/2 and she was really blown away by it. i think it has now become my favorite fellini.
“Juliet of the Spirits” was the first Fellini I saw, and I couldn’t imagine his work in black & white, which put me off “8 1/2” and “La Dolve Vita” for years and years.
Nights of Cabiria. Color caused his self indulgence to jump the tracks. He was never as good as the B&W days.
i vitteloni, Juliet of the spirits and Nights of Cabiriba.
I think I love JULIET OF THE SPIRITS most of all. It’s his most modern film it seems. Although it’s a very big film conceptually (dazzling colours, brilliant sets, elaborate choreography, very surreal) it’s his most microscopic emotionally in the way the story takes it’s time to study the single event of a woman facing the infidelity of her husband. I think after 8 1/2 it’s Fellini’s most introspective film.
I prefer Amarcord to both La Dolce Vita and 8 1/2. And The Ship Sails On is really underrated, too, I think.
Nights of Cabiria / La Strada
Satyricon / Juliet
I’d say Amarcord.
Nights of Cabiria, Amarcord, Juliet of the Spirits…………..La Strada.
La Strada then Nights of Cabira, then Julet of Spirits and then I Vitelloni.
Nights of Cabiria , even if you include the very fine La Dolce Vita and 8 1/2.
“Fellini-Satyricon”, for sure.
Please, fell free to under-rate “La Strada”, since there’s almost no Fellini in it.
