This review is from: Satyricon [DVD] (DVD)
Fellini Satyricon, despite its threadbare plot and poor post-dubbing, is marvellously entertaining for viewers who like watching weird outlandishness in movies. Fans of David Lynch, intelligent sex comedies and, of course, Federico Fellini will be in seventh heaven!
One complaint about the DVD. The film, naturally, is in Italian. Now, I hate dubbing foreign films, but because the post-dubbing is so (deliberately) poor on this film an English language track wouldn't have mattered so much. Especially since the only English subtitles available on the disc are for the hard of hearing. This means that those of us who are fine of hearing and who don't speak Italian have to be constantly reminded as we watch the film about which character just laughed, about the rumbling noise that accompanies an earthquake, about crowds of people yelling etc. Really off-putting, and really lazy of MGM DVD. Maybe I'll complain...
