Take a ride on the Italian New Wave with Federico Fellini's hypnagogic masterpiece about a director on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The film that put the term "Felliniesque" on the map with its narrative experimentation and surreal visual touches, "8 1/2" (1963) is widely regarded as his most influential work alongside "La Dolce Vita" (1960). Marcello Mastroianni stars as director Anselmi, whose latest cinematic undertaking incites a midlife crisis, told via flashbacks, dream sequences, and an increasingly crumbling reality. 2-disc set includes restored print, plus the television film, "Fellini: A Director's Notebook" (1969).
