Fellini, Take Two...

Whenever I think of Fellini, the one thing that immediately enters my mind is his idiosyncratic way of directing actors -- notice how his actors used their hands to make circles in the air, turned their heads and winked, smiled, or pouted directly at the camera. I doubt Fellini viewed himself as an "experimental" filmmaker. My suspicion is that he was confident, and very possibly not at all self-conscious, in blending those innovative directorial choices into his cinematic storytelling.
