Nine

May 17th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Fergie is pretty great. That’s something I’d never have imagined being in a position to say. As a cinema lover, though, there’s a lot more going for Nine than just Fergie. But none was as big of a surprise to me as she – and the choreography of her number, “Be Italian,” with its direct visual references to Fellini’s 8-1/2. I was prepared to be underwhelmed by this film. Instead, from the large visual flourishes to the more subtle thematic symbolism, I was pretty captivated. Maybe I’m still coming down from of my Werner Herzog existential trip.
