DVD Review: La Dolce Vita
Another periodic look back at classic cinema, this is one of Frederico Fellini's two most famous movies (8 1/2
being the other). Overall, I get the sense this is one of those movies you really had to be there for in order to get the full experience. Very controversial in its day, it's pretty tame by today's standards in terms of content. It's also, in contrast to its title, really long, and a lot of the time I found it dragged. Much as with Samaritan Girl
, I'll wimp out on assigning this one a rating.
