Time Out says
Restored and re-released at the BFI Southbank this week, 8½ 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, 8½ has been much copied, but this is the real thing. See it.
