Giulietta degli spiriti

Federico Fellini Italia, 1965

Greg S.'s rating of the film Juliet of the Spirits

I want to call this movie a masterpiece so badly but argh! It's just not there, there's some delirious bits that are impossible not to admire and the lead is all kinds of charming but Fellini can't quite make his point without it feeling excessive at least to me. And in the end it just doesn't quite come together in the way that something like 8 1/2 does. A must see none the less.
