Federico Fellini

The movies of Federico Fellini may be a far cry from what’s popular in cinemas today, but he is still regarded as one of the greatest directors of all time. The Italian filmmaker remains hugely influential, and inspired everyone from David Lynch to Tim Burton, Stanley Kubrick, Bob Dylan, and Lana Del Rey. His movies, which include the classics “La Dolce Vita” and “8½,” are often dreamlike visions that probe the very nature of memory, fantasy, and desire. Fellini’s distinctive style takes ordinary situations and overlays them with hallucinatory imagery — and any type of art that mirrors this style is often called “Felliniesque.”
