Arguably Fellini’s greatest film, La Dolce Vita is a searing critique of celebrity-obsessed society as seen through the eyes of a fluff-peddling journalist (Marcello Mastroianni famously plays a gossip columnist and would-be novelist who chronicles "the sweet life" of fading aristocrats, second-rate movie stars and aging playboys.) Lust, adultery, loneliness and tragedy follow the philandering Marcello as he vainly vies for the affections of a vivacious screen goddess (Anita Ekberg) while fleeing his obsessive, suicidal fiancée. Fellini contrives what Roger Ebert called "a cautionary tale of a man without a centre" in this defining film that coined the term paparazzi, and which boldly demystified the pretensions of celebrity culture.
