Okay I just saw this on dvd, and I was very impressed!
There are so many things, but especially the way he shots vapor is amazing!!
Very funny and bizarre, but also warm.
The Picture was very good! Good job Criterion! It looked new. The sound was the same, no noise or anything.
I noticed that the sound is mixed rather upfront ( Actually it is the most upfront I ever heard voices in a film before!)

A couple of questions ;
What was the two sisters doing in the bed with the elder man? Was this a rehearsal or was it sex ? I guess it could be both since the whole film mixes dream and reality.
Also the scene with all the women in Guido's life.
Did going upstairs mean his subconsciouses or maybe to forget them completely?
At the end of that scene where his wife is cleaning; Is this the way Guido wants his women?
So he can be in control? Or was it the way he or his wife saw there relationship?

So nobody wants to discuss this brilliant film then?
And yes I do realize that I spelled the thread name wrong!

Well there's not a lot to add, 8 1/2 is a masterpiece..
I can't think that many would disagree with you.

Nuff said. :D

I'm planning on watching it again this weekend anyway so I'll have a think about the questions you raised then. :)

The reason the dialogue sounds so clear and upfront is that like the majority of Italian films, it was filmed as a silent movie and all the dialogue was dubbed on later. You don't mention it, but have you checked out the extras on disc 2, especially the interview with Fellini's mistress who plays Mastroianni's mistress in the film?!
