(1960) directed by Federico Fellini • starring Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg & Anouk Aimée • Here it is: Indisputably one of the greatest films of all time, the film that captured a fleeting moment in time and yet defined not only an era but a state of mind, Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita is now available on DVD. This is the film that pinpointed once and for all the transformation that movies -- Hollywood movies initially, but all of cinema ultimately -- have wrought upon the human soul. We are now all actors in a film, we view are own lives as cinematic spectacles to fulfilled, we are all dying to live la dolce vita. And here we have the definitive DVD edition, completely restored and remastered. You can take it from us – Koch-Lorber have done a terrific job here; at least as good as Criterion in this regard: the image is clean and crisp, the contrast is perfectly calibrated and the sound is sharp. And this 3-disc deluxe edition is loaded with bonus features galore, which you can read abot by clicking on the image at left.
