Fellini: I'm A Born Liar (Region 1) - Pettigrew, Damian
Releasedatum: 2 december 2003
Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini created one of cinema's most distinct, influential, and lasting bodies of work over the course of his legendary career. Fellini's films explored the director's innermost fears, dreams, and desires with uncompromising originality, and forever changed cinema in the process. In this documentary from Damian Pettigrew, audiences get to hear from the director himself, who was interviewed just months before his passing in October 1993. Fellini isn't a theorist, and that's what makes his discourses so entertaining. He proves that his films were true expressions of the subconscious, without the over-intellectualizing that plagued the work of so many of his peers. In addition to clips from '8 1/2' and 'La Dolce Vita', Pettigrew presents behind-the-scenes footage of Fellini directing 'Satyricon' and 'Amarcord'. This footage provides greater insight into the director's almost comically two-dimensional view of actors, who he treated more like puppets than actual human beings. Corroborating this are several actors who worked with Fellini on different projects, including Donald Sutherland, Terence Stamp, and Roberto Benigni. A must-see for film aficionados, 'I'm A Born Liar' only adds to the director's already boundless mystique and charm.
