366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 320


The Date: August 15

The Movie: 8 ½ (1963)

What Is It?: Fellini confronts his childhood, his filmmaking, and his prodigious infidelities with self-demolishing honesty, surreal humor, and incredible style. 8 ½ is overflowing with uncanny imagery and haunting music by Nino Rota. Marcello Mastroianni plays the director’s stand-in Guido Anselmi as a guilt-riddled dreamer struggling to make his latest picture amidst the constant meddling of backers and producers. Unable to keep his head in the here-and-now, Guido bounces around his past in surrealistic, poignant, hilarious flashbacks.

Why Today?: Today is half-way through the eighth month.
