Though "Roma" has the dreamlike flow of "8 1/2" and most late Fellini films, it works here in a way that often didn't for the director.
The city that Federico Fellini explores for almost two hours bears little resemblance to the real Rome.
Fellini isn't just giving us a lot of flashy scenes, he's building a narrative that has a city for its protagonist instead of a single character.
But it is a film worth seeing, if only to get the opportunity to see one of the world's greatest cities through the eyes of one of the world's greatest artists.
A semi-docu, Fellini's Roma is as much about the eccentric director as it is about this endlessly fascinating city
Eternal City fugue
Roma, a confounding and confused semi-documentary, tried the patience of even the most devoted Fellini fans.
What Fellini can't give us, is what's not in him--a true sense of the political and the art.
I'm pretty mixed over this film. It never did much for me, but I've never hated it, either. You either love Fellini, or you hate him. I guess I'm that weird anomaly that doesn't care.
Fellini is as firmly associated with Rome as Julius Caesar.
Fellini continues to experiment with the limits of structure and language after his previous films, this time to take a sharp, episodic and humorous look at the Rome of his youth, the Rome of then and his ambivalent feelings for this city (or his idea of it) that he seems to love and hate.
I don't understand what everyone sees in this film. Maybe I'm too much of a pragmatist, but a plotless, lousy filmed, self indulgent movie seems a waste of time, even if Fellini is the director.
Can become a bit tiresome but cannot be judged from the point of view of plot and acting. It's a personal celebration of what the city of Rome means to the director, with its' history and its' huge variety of wild characters in the neighborhood. One can't deny the director's startling visuals.
Really fascinating film from Fellini. One day I'll make a movie about the place where I was born: Atlantis!
