As fresh as if made today
Philip from Dublin, 25 Jul 2010
One of Fellini's great masterpieces, this is as fresh and important today as the day it was made. Sprawling, gorgeous, licentious and moving, this is an epic of vacuousness - following the slow disintegration of the integrity of a journalist dedicating himself to writing about the lives of the idle rich and almost famous. The film is full of stunning imagery, not least the great ending.
Requires patience I didn't have

I love italian language and so rented this movie, however I had to fight to stay awake during this film, and actually gave up half way through due to the plot not being apparent yet, and very little of interest happening! Not something I usually do, but I physically couldn't watch any more :-(
Too Long, Boring

Way too long, the Anita Ekberg character was just going somewhere when that story ended - never to be seen again..... she was best bit of this film by a million miles. Using her image to sell it when she's only a tiny part of the movie is a bit dishonest to say the least.
La Dolce Vita

An Italian classic? I got sick of it after an hour. It's not that the film was terrible, rather it was simply too long, too slow and too many annoying scenes to spend any longer reading the subtitles!
