I was thinking about this topic the other night when I attempted for the 10th time, I think, to sit through the DVD of Fellini's 8 1/2. Saw this 10 years ago on VHS when I was taking film classes and thought it was a well crafted piece of art, but not a very entertaining one. Bought the DVD about a year ago and being amazed at it's pristine transfer I have tried to sit through it. So far it has managed to put me asleep every single time I have watched it. Don't think I have gotten past the 40 minute mark yet. So much so, that I know put it on when I am trying to fall asleep ... works every time. Maybe it's the mesmerizing effect of the Italian dialogue coupled with the score? Am I psyching myself out or does anyone else have their favorite movie that puts you to sleep.
