A dazzling technical achievement, from the color to the tracking shots that delight in running down every detail of Juliet's companions.
The movie that swirls around Masina is a dazzling -- and, for some, incoherent -- production deep into the feminine psyche.
It never less than dazzling to look at.
| Original Score: 4/4
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.
At once an eye-popping display of bravura and a work of compassionate insight.
Fellini went deliriously and brilliantly bananas with the color to create a rollicking through-the- looking-glass series of tableaus evoking a woman's troubled psyche.
Juliet is never less than eye-catching, but is rarely more.
