Some really breathtaking scenes made me want to like this... but I just don't.
If you're expecting something along the lines of "La Dolce Vita" or "La Strada" or even "8 1/2" you'll be thoroughly disappointed.
This is Fellini asking himself "what would happen if Alejandro Jodorowsky made "Caligula"". And it's better for it.
Satyricon is an Acid trip of the best kind. How is this not a gay cult movie?
Evidence of Fellini's mortality. I found the grotesque and visceral imagery very difficult to sit through, let alone decipher any meaning from.
