One of the greatest Italian filmmakers, Federico Fellini (1920-1993) created such masterpieces as "La Strada, La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2, Juliet of the Spirits, Satyricon," and "Amarcord." His prodigious body of work evokes Pirandello, existentialism, "the silence of God," as well as show business. Critics have accused him of being a charlatan, hypocrite, clown, and demon, and have hailed him as a magician, poet, genius, and prophet. "Fellini on Fellini "is a fascinating collection of his articles, interviews, essays, reminiscences, and table talk, carefully arranged to chart the progress of his life and work. There are boyhood memories of his hometown, Remini, and his highly improbable beginnings as a scriptwriter for Rossellini; letters to Jesuit priests and Marxist critics defending his first international success, "La Strada;" anecdotes and revelations about the making of "La Dolca Vita, 8 1/2, " and "The Clowns;" and insights into all aspects of filmmaking. Here, Fellini reveals, as no one else can, a rich digest of his brilliant and controversial career.
