Young Federico 

Wednesday, Feb 25 2009
It's a great mystery of the world: Who removed Federico Fellini's shame? Who implied to him that it would be OK to make movies featuring butt after fetishized, wiggling lady-butt? This message was clearly received by the filmmaker at a young age; one has to suspect it was his mother who encouraged him. So, thank you Sra. Fellini -- nobody does butt close-ups like your boy! Nowhere in Fellini's body of work do the asses strain against pencil skirts like they do in the relatively little-seen Amarcord, a semi-autobiographical story about life in Italy under Mussolini. A newly restored version presents an improved view of posteriors and politicos.
