For my Paparazzo

Posted in Uncategorized by Joie on July 17, 2008

La Dolce Vita is always two things at once: It’s a wallow in decadence disguised as a moral saga, and it’s a moral saga disguised as a wallow in decadence. It’s always both, and that tension is always there, within the film and the filmmaker.

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

A series of nights and dawns, descents and ascents.  Once again everything collapses in an exhausted dawn.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Nino Rota – Patricia

For a film that is episodic (and lengthy) by nature, it might be wise to poach a single frame from memory and arrange a special menagerie for a future me to decipher.  I pity the totality of analysis, I champion my Rorschach in flux.

Don’t look for the Trevi Fountain here.
