Sweet and endearing for many, irritating and tedious for others.

[S]imply nonsensical to me. Fascists are idiots, Catholic priests are clowns -- I agree with this. So why don't I feel it?

Continues to resemble something a lewd, grouchy, fitfully indecent silent-movie director might have made for his first time using color and sound. That, at least, would explain the shouting.

December 22, 2009

Bloated, overblown and essentially empty, Fellini's last hit movie skims over the surface of the lives it depicts, substituting manufactured sentiment for genuine feeling or understanding.

Trespass

Fellini's ability to compose a frame that oozes baroque drama and vitality is almost unparalleled and Amarcord more or less succeeded for me in evoking a time period through the eyes of a young boy...

A totally accessible film. It deals directly, hilariously, and sometimes poignantly with the good people of this small town.

I'm not sure how Amarcord played in the '70s, but now it feels like an affectionate parody of Italian movie conventions.

Amarcord is Fellini's scrapbook of memories culled from his own life and it is completely engaging and delightful.

What's so surprising about this film is just how loose and effortlessly enjoyable it is, despite all its ideas and images. It's one of the director's very best.

Fellini is so bountiful with incident and observation that he makes most other film makers seem stingy.

He [Director Fellini] leaves us with the hope that the human comedy just may be able to survive everything.

It's the more fanciful and lighthearted first half of the film (obviously a big inspiration for some of Woody Allen's work) that works the best.

Fellini's whimsical and tender semi-autobiographical film is one of his best works.
