Federico Fellini’s skewed celebration of female empowerment is a fantastical rambling circus of a film seemingly without beginning or end and filled with enough flesh and psychosexual sleight of hand to give Sigmund Freud a stiffy—a photo gallery of sexy backlit females who moan and beg for it at the touch of a button was especially telling. There is no doubt but that Fellini loved women and was in awe of them, but whereas a director like Pedro Almodóvar expresses his own admiration for the fairer sex with dignity and warm humour, in "City" Fellini approached his subjects with some degree of trepidation often portraying them as avenging Valkyries or hypersexualized carnivores—or in the case of one man's unnatural attraction to a stone bust of his mother, aloof goddesses. Overly long and filled with gaudy detours (a lustful salute to Hollywood’s Golden Age was cute) this is not one of Federico’s better films, but if you’re willing to take it as a dated feminist time capsule it will certainly give you something to talk about afterwards. In the words of an exasperated Snàporaz himself, “What kind of movie is this!?”
