Yank critic-filmmaker Gideon Bachmann, a longtime Rome resident, made this 16mm docu on Italian director Federico Fellini making Satyricon.

Pic’s glue-like coverage of the sly, wry Fellini, and the latter’s charm and interest shows him as a chameleon-like figure. He rages, but with an underlying lack of true anger, and a seeming watching of his own actions. So he rarely reveals himself in words but may do so in actions, even if they appear often calculated.

Pic is as airy, unrevealing but picturesque as Fellini’s symbolical, circusy pix and his tender choosing of grotesques and beauty to limn his own fantasy world on film.

Ciao, Federico!
