[La Strada]

There’s a new theater in town, a year-round film festival venue, and to kick it off as it were they’re running a series of world art house cinema — the Janus festival. It is made of awesome, and even though I’m not seeing as many as I had hoped, it still seems to be keeping me too busy to update this space. My first one was La Strada, which is also my first Fellini. I found it sweet & heartbreaking, and now I need to pick up Nights of Cabiria. (It seems kind of ridiculous that I’ve seen Sweet Charity but not Nights, but I have a well-documented thing for Bob Fosse, so there you go.)
