La Dolce Vita

Certain movies should be seen again and again. Fellini's La Dolce Vita is one of them. Fellini documents the career arc of a young gossip columnist who dreams about giving up his celebrity-chasing job and party lifestyle to write some real literature. The film is rich and full of complex human drama, of cruelty, heartbreak, vanity, perversion and self-inflicted suffering by people who publicly crush and mock their own dreams.

My cousin Bill Lacey restored the audio soundtrack. Bill is a Grammy-winning audio engineer and musician. Great music, great film.
