This week on Alcohollywood, Jared and Clint (and special guest Craig) tackle one of the most flat-out crazy and out-there movies any of us have ever seen – the dreamlike, episodic 1969 tale of Roman debauchery Fellini Satyricon! Directed by famed Italian director Federico Fellini, this strange, bawdy and extremely Roman escapade follows a pair of Romans as they explore what it means to live in the empty excess of Rome…plus minotaurs. It’s a real treat if you haven’t seen it, but be prepared to be confused and amazed!
Fellini Satyricon is available on Netflix Instant!
