Description:

The Films of Federico Fellini examines the career of one of Italys most renowned filmmakers through close analysis of five masterpieces that span his career: La Strada, La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2, Amarcord and Interview. Providing an overview of Fellinis early career as a cartoonist and scriptwriter for neorealist directors such as Roberto Rossellini, this study traces the development of Fellinis unique and personal cinematic vision as it transcends Italian neorealism. Rejecting an overtly ideological approach to Fellinis cinema, Bondanella emphasizes the directors interest in fantasy, the irrational and individualism.
