Critic Reviews

  1. A mad, resplendent peacock of a film, a cinematographic riot of color and sensuality that evokes its era -- the swinging mid-'60s -- as much as any movie made during those giddy years.
  2. Masina gives one of her most expressive performances.
  3. Remains a timeless, major work of a master.
  4. Sometimes the cinema is just heavenly, and this is one of those times.
  5. Flopped on its initial release, and it is a somewhat decadent and overlong production. But Masina's performance is, as always, engaging, and Fellini's glee at launching into color filmmaking is palpable.
  6. Above all, the film is just wonderfully ... well, Fellini-esque. It looks like nothing the cinema has seen since then.
  7. Invites you to contemplate the symbolic vibration of every hue in its teeming, overcrowded canvas.
  8. 80
    Fellini has put together an imperial-sized fantasy of a physical opulence to make the old Vincente Minnelli Metro musicals look like army training films.
