    So according to these comments this is either the greatest movie ever or the worst. 10 years ago

    He counted his movies as a co-director as a ½ movie. He made 3 movies with other directors and 6 by himself. So 8½ was his 8½ film... 11 years ago

    Definitely an important movie, but I don't agree that it was simply random. Important for modernism and futurism I'd say. On Wikipedia, someone compares this to Ulysses (Joyce), which is apt. 10 years 5 months ago
