Movie buffs and society fixtures gathered at Tribeca Cinema to view Corinth Film's remastered 35 mm print of Fellini's masterpiece 8 1/2. Afterward, audience members enjoyed cocktails and foodstuffs at the Tribeca Grill, presumably while pondering writer's block and the creative process.-

For those of you who've been watching more "Die Hard" and less "La Dolce Vita" lately, 8 1/2 is about a frustrated filmmaker (overidentifying, Fellini?) struggling through a sci-fi film while descending into spiraling flashbacks and fantasy sequences. Think of it as a cross between Adaptation and Avatar. I mean, not actually, but I wanted to say that. Incidentally, the hors d'ouevres photos are triggering intense flashbacks to the breakfast I didn't have this morning.
Did you miss the festivities? The new 35 mm print of the masterwork opens to the public on March 26th at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas.
