Marcello Mastroianni plays Guido Anselmi, a director whose new project is collapsing around him, along with his life. One of the greatest films about film ever made, Federico Fellini’s  (Otto e mezzo) turns one man’s artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema. An early working title for was “The Beautiful Confusion,” and Fellini’s masterpiece is exactly that: a shimmering dream, a circus, and a magic act. A Janus Films release
