"8 1/2," directed by Federico Fellini. Fresh off of the international success of "La Dolce Vita," master director Fellini moved into the realm of self-reflexive autobiography with what is widely believed to be his finest and most personal work.

He finds himself harangued by producers, his wife and his mistress while he struggles to find the inspiration to finish his film. NR, 2:18
