Four Films From Fellini - La Dolce Vita ; I Vitelloni ; 8 1/2 ; Giuliette Degli Spiriti DVD


La Dolce Vita (1960): Marcello Mastroianni plays a playboy reporter on the hunt for scandal amongst Rome's high society in this classic Italian film directed by Federico Fellini. Both drawn to and repelled by the decadent lifestyle that provides his living he finds himself torn between his passion for a starlet (Anita Ekberg) and his desire for a Bohemian life like that of his friend (Alain Cuny)... Giuliette Degli Spiriti (1965) I Vitelloni (1953): Five young men linger in post-adolescent limbo dreaming of adventure and escape from their small seacoast town. They... while away their time spending the lira doled out by their indulgent families on drink women and nights at the local pool hall. Federico Fellini's second solo directorial effort is a semi-autobiographical masterpiece of sharply drawn character sketches. An international success and recipient of an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay I Vitelloni compassionately details a year in the life of small-town layabouts struggling to find meaning in their lives. Criterion's DVD also includes an exclusive documentary featuring interviews with late actor Leopoldo Trieste and other actors technicians and scholars; the original trailer and newsreels from the time of the film's release; a collection of stills posters and memorabilia; and more. 8 1/2: (1963) One of the greatest films about film ever made Federico Fellini's 8 1/2 (Otto e mezzo) turns one man's artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema. Guido Anselmi (Marcello Mastrioanni) is a director whose film -- and life -- is collapsing around him. An early working title for the film was La Bella Confusione (The Beautiful Confusion) and Fellini's masterpiece is exactly that: a shimmering dream a circus and a magic act. The Criterion Collection is proud to present the 1963 Academy Award winner for Best Foreign-Language Film - one of the most written about talked about and imitated movies of all time -- in a beautifully restored new all digital transfer. Disc Two features Fellini's rarely seen first film for television Fellini: A Director's Notebook (1969). Produced by Peter Goldfarb this ""imagined documentary"" of Fellini on Fellini is a kaleidoscope of unfinished projects all of which provide a fascinating and candid window into the director's unique and creative process.
