Chaplin's Moustache

put it on.

What’s a fella to do when plagued with the double whammy of artistic doubt and an overpowering pressure to succeed, all while his personal life is a jumble of wives, mistresses, and animosity towards the Catholic church?  Make like Federico Fellini, and turn lemons into refreshing, Oscar-laden lemonade.

Federico Fellini’s 8 1/2 follows an established director, Guido, as he films a movie despite worries that it may flop.  His glamorous life is upstaged by dream-like sequences that refer to his childhood, relationships with women, and a disconnect with people in his life, which he ultimately tries to repair through his art.
