    There’s some good atmosphere and the performances are solid all around, but it’s also dull and self-righteous.  The meta element is weird and doesn’t really work.  I’m still not sure whether I like Pugh as an actor, but she’s very good here.

    Just……no. I don't doubt that Mary Bronstein is capable of making a decent film, but this is for sure not it. A brutally long 77 minutes. Insufferable people being miserable together.  Also, Mrs. Bronstein: FUCK YOUR ANTI-MOZ poster.  Corny ass white lady lib.

    One of those "essential art house" movies I've always put off seeing. I thought the hype around this would lead to disappointment, but holy fuck, what a movie. A funny, challenging depiction of an artist in personal and creative crisis. It's remarkable that Fellini was able to create something so layered and complex, and yet so joyously entertaining. Surprisingly heartfelt. Fellini utilizes sentimentality and nostalgia in a way that is honest and artistically daring.
