“Federico Fellini: The Essential Films”

I have loved the work of Federico Fellini for so long, and watched his movies so often over the years since my high school days, that when Criterion announced they were dropping a big-ass collection of his best work – a contestable claim given that so much of his filmography ranges from good to great – that I kinda knew, like the Varda set, that I had to review it. So: I did.

I put down lots of words for this so I’ll spare you much by way of preamble; I’ll just say “thanks” to Hollis Alpert and his book Fellini, a Life, which taught me a lot about Fellini years ago when I first read it and served as a good resource for my writing on this box set.
