Director: Federico Fellini
From Gay Essential
This fantasy film by Federico Fellini is an Italian classic which depicts the kernel of Roman culture. Separated into nine different episodes, Fellini’s Satyricon is partially based on the work of the courtier Gaius Petronius Arbiter, who lived during the age of Nero. The drama film was released in 1969 and stars Martin Potter, Hiram Keller and Max Born.
“I think Fellini-Satyricon needs to be approached with some preparation; it’s unlikely to hold your attention without knowing a little bit about the background of the story, and perhaps the personal and social challenges Fellini faced as a film director.”
— Blueprint Review
“Fellini Satyricon, an adaptation of the fragmentary remnants of a Roman novel attributed to Gaius Petronius Arbiter, a courtier in Nero’s Rome, is quite unlike any other movie.”
“It dares us to recognize rather than deny or accuse these strange people and habits, and if we try to measure them against our idea of normality, to quantify their appeal or horror by some standard we feel we can trust.”
