La città delle donne

Federico Fellini Italy, 1980

Jason's rating of the film City of Women

At its best (far stronger in the first half than in the second (or maybe I was just exhausted)) CITY OF WOMEN possesses the anarchic joie de vivre of THE MUPPET SHOW. In its dedication to berserkoid misadventure of a distinctly themed nature, it was hard not to think of certain postmodern American novelists like Pynchon and Robert Coover. Mastroianni basically a beleaguered foil, the pleasures are all about women.
