A compelling look at the machinery and inhumanity of the cinema industry. One of my personal favorites, I think it does a really great job of critiquing the Cinecitta type of cinema around which the narrative revolves. The cinematography along with the acting (Anna Magnani!), really pull together a poignant story of a girl trying to make it in the entertainment industry and being subjected to the exploitative nature of the business.
