La Dolce Vita

5

One of the cornerstones of European cinema, Federico Fellini's prescient classic eyes a generation in spiritual freefall. Marcello Mastroianni is our hedonistic guide, his playboy journo supping the sweet life - - parties, starlets, whores - - as his girlfriend pouts at home.

Tottering between the neo-realism of Fellini's early work and the wild fantasia of his later reveries, this extravagant, kaleidoscopic picture is no longer achingly hip but still thrums with greatness. Divine decadence, indeed.
