Abstract:

"I'm a Born Liar: A Fellini Lexicon, based on a candid and revealing series of interviews with Federico Fellini conducted in 1992, the year before his death, offers rare insight into the inventive and original world of one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. Fellini, who directed a host of legendary films, including 8 1/2, La Strada, La Dolce Vita, Satyricon, Amarcord, and Nights of Cabiria, is an exuberant storyteller with an untamed imagination, and these interviews, which also form the backbone of the documentary Fellini: I'm a Born Liar, capture the energy and passion of its subject.".

"Fellini candidly discusses every aspect of his work, from his early life to his relationship with Italian history and culture to the inspiration behind his films, revealing his motivations, desires, and obsessions. He discusses women ("the unknown planet"), neuroses ("fabulous treasure buried at the bottom of the sea"), cinema ("not about delivering messages but about raising questions"), actors ("puppets"), Marcello Mastroianni ("The only time we ever clashed was during the shooting of 8 1/2 when I asked him to shave the hair on his chest"), memory, marriage, and more."--BOOK JACKET.
