Amarcord DVD - 1998 | Italian

At an almost unbearable 130-minute running time - Fellini's "Amarcord" (whose title translates to "I remember") was such utterly absurd storytelling that it could only be described as being pure cinematic flatulence (aka. "Art House" cinema).

This 1973 film's erratically disjointed sequences were so hastily slapped together (thanks to Fellini's obvious directorial incompetence) that they inevitably defied any real logical coherency at all.

To say that I was completely floored with disbelief to find out that "Amarcord" had actually won an "Oscar" for "Best Foreign Film" of that year would truly be an understatement like no other.
