Critic Reviews of "La Dolce Vita"The New RepublicMay 01, 2013
Fellini has set out to move us with the depravity of contemporary life and has chosen what seems to me a poor method: cataloging sins. Very soon we find ourselves thinking: Is that all?Time OutJune 01, 2011
Everything has changed, and nothing has changed. How sour it still is.VarietyMay 08, 2007
Perhaps many spectators will squirm at the three-hour length of the film or of some of its sequences (though director Federico Fellini cut some 30 minutes from his final print), yet others will never notice they've sat that long.Chicago ReaderMay 08, 2007
The film was hugely successful and widely praised in its time, though it's really nothing more than the old C.B. De Mille formula of titillation and moralizing.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
There are perhaps a couple of party scenes too many, and the peripheral characters can be unconvincing, but the stylish cinematography and Fellini's bizarre, extravagant visuals are absolutely riveting.Hollywood ReporterDecember 27, 2004
Everyone has a favorite scene.Common Sense MediaOctober 19, 2016
'60s Fellini classic has sex, drinking, suicide.Cinema SightAugust 15, 2011
A lovely Italian palette that questions if we can settle down to a life of struggle without having first lived life at its best.Slant MagazineJune 03, 2011
What is happiness within the film's world? Fellini offers no easy answers.AskMen.comFebruary 17, 2010
Along with his later 8 1/2, La Dolce Vita is regarded as one of acclaimed Italian director Federico Fellini's best-loved and most influential films. The '60s-set tale of one man's struggle with the so-called "sweet life" stars Marcello MastroiDaily RadarApril 24, 2009
The satire on display is so simultaneously subtle yet blatant that the movie itself is intoxicating.Film4April 20, 2009
In spite of its thematic ugliness, this is a stunning-looking trawl through the Italian capital, with Ekberg's impromptu paddle in the Trevi fountain still the films enduring image.
