Jon Negroni makes his long-awaited return to Extra Milestone to investigate Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, one of his very favorite films. For 60 years, the film has gained a reputation of being one of the most insightful and layered journeys of World Cinema, and I had a wonderful time learning about its many rich cinematic attributes from Jon. Tune in to hear the two of us break down the film’s cinematography, the way it uses the city of Rome to help tell its story, the many exciting chapters that comprise the plot, and more!
NEXT WEEK: To kick off the month of June, I will be joined by my former coworker and very close friend Tyler Chambers to review Monty Python and the Holy Grail and The Blues Brothers, two all-time comedy classics!
