Ratings & Reviews

  1. Cartaphilus's rating of the film The White Sheik

  2. bulgrin's rating of the film The White Sheik

    Fellini in his fledgling stages already developing his very style. A somehow bittersweet comedy it has all you would expect when you're going to watch a Fellini movie.

  3. B o g d a n's rating of the film The White Sheik

    Nice intentions spotted, but the baroquesque drowned it in exteriorisations that cannot bring about atmospheric accumulations.

  4. ermete polpette's rating of the film The White Sheik

  5. eugenie de sade's rating of the film The White Sheik

    i love fellini more than any shite and sound film bro has the capacity to understand

  6. Ethan's rating of the film The White Sheik

    This is a delightful film that shows Fellini coming into his own craft as a filmmaker. Perception vs. reality at its finest and Alberto Sordi is exceptional, as per usual, in this film.

  7. Mr. Smifff's rating of the film The White Sheik

    Fellini's first solo directorial project is as Woody Allen put it, "The perfect little comedy". I agree completely. This is a small, funny, clean little movie, and Fellini's tiny masterpiece. Every second of this movie belongs where it does. Sure, you can munch on some giant movies like La Dolce Vita, and 8 1/2, but this movie's a little Fellini snack, which shows just what he is capable of, and an underrated gem.

  8. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The White Sheik

    Fellini is an interesting case because his most "Felliniesque" movies aren't necessarily his best, so many newcomers arrive at his more famous later films and get turned off by the heavy style. You have to go back to lighter, early films like this to clearly see what his work was always really about: an exquisitely heartfelt affection for simple minds—for the juvenile, the lustful, and the naive.

  9. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The White Sheik

    Comedia sobre las fantasías italianas: Sobre la mujer que vive de las fotonovelas y el hombre que vive de las apariencias. Ambas ridiculizadas con un ambiente que a pesar de desatar drama, provoca burla.

  10. Juan Valero's rating of the film The White Sheik

    The perfect introduction to Fellini's films.

  11. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The White Sheik

    A really funny film from Fellini!

  12. Adriano Rocha's rating of the film The White Sheik

    Ri e chorei, revendo essa obra-prima do gênio Buñuel. I laughed and cried, by reviewing this masterpiece by Buñuel, the genius.

  13. chanandre's rating of the film The White Sheik

    [Cinémathèque PT #488: 35 mm] (2007) - Terry Malick has a deep film-crush about this film. True facts.

  14. Lefteris Becerra's rating of the film The White Sheik

    excelente guión lleno de fellinadas, el ritmo de la película es magnífico y las situaciones que plantea tienen ese toque de caricatura que caracteriza el trazo del director. se disfruta mucho, más fellini, más!
