Flopped on its initial release, and it is a somewhat decadent and overlong production. But Masina's performance is, as always, engaging, and Fellini's glee at launching into color filmmaking is palpable.
Stream Juliet of the Spirits
What are people saying?
What are critics saying?
Masina gives one of her most expressive performances.
Sometimes the cinema is just heavenly, and this is one of those times.
Remains a timeless, major work of a master.
Juliet is never less than eye-catching, but is rarely more.
A mad, resplendent peacock of a film, a cinematographic riot of color and sensuality that evokes its era -- the swinging mid-'60s -- as much as any movie made during those giddy years.
Invites you to contemplate the symbolic vibration of every hue in its teeming, overcrowded canvas.
Above all, the film is just wonderfully ... well, Fellini-esque. It looks like nothing the cinema has seen since then.
