Restored and re-released at the BFI Southbank this week, ‘81/2’ is one of Italian director Federico Fellini’s greatest films. Released in 1963, it’s wildly fun and frenetic but also a penetrating portrait of a filmmaker (Marcello Mastroianni) in a creative rut. Inventive and imaginative, ‘81/2’ has been much copied, but this is the real thing. See it.
