Capital Celluloid 2013 - Day 143: Thu May 23

Fellini's Roma (Fellini, 1972): Phoenix Cinema, 11am

Chicago Reader review:
An imaginative, highly personal travelogue and essay film by Federico Fellini (1972), one of his best works of this period. It features the filmmaker roaming around the Eternal City with his crew, musing about the recent and distant historical past, running into old chums and acquaintances (such as Anna Magnani and Gore Vidal), and occasionally indulging some flamboyant conceits for their own sake (e.g., the memorable ecclesiastical fashion show). As usual with Fellini, especially from the 70s on, spectacle tends to be everything. In Italian with subtitles. 128 min.
Jonathan Rosenbaum

Here's the fabulous trailer.
