#050: And The Ship Sails On

criterion50FEDERICO FELLINI

1983

Some movies are such beautiful dreams it doesn’t matter that they’re not exactly the stuff of literary genius.  I love Fellini’s late-life masterpiece, an indulgence in opera music and period details that doesn’t exactly work for everybody, I find a lot of people find it either boring or don’t like its intentional artifice.  For me, the falseness of what it shows is as much an aspect of what makes it pleasurable as what makes it poignant and enlightening, there’s a great deal of theory in Fellini’s creations.
