Amarcord – 1973 Fellini

It picks up with where he started with satyricon (1969( and roma (1972)- it’s a sprawling exercise in excess, vulgarity and has even less narrative focus- it’s really a series of characters and vignettes more than satyricon or roma (which is more of an anthology film in comparison) #72 all-time on TSPDT in 2017 which is overrated- it actually hopped ahead of la strada as the 3rd best Fellini film (8 ½ and la dolce vita) Very personal filmmaking- warm, ripe, and influential-I can see the influences in everything from Woody Allen to Porky’s Brisk and accessible Narratively reflexive
