About Fellini Satyricon (Italy, 1969)

“Rome. Before Christ. After Fellini.” Petronius’s collection of ribald tales from ancient Rome gets the Fellini treatment. Man-about-town Encolpio (Martin Potter) roams high and low through every strata of Roman society in pursuit of a slave boy stolen by his rival (Hiram Keller), experiencing all manner of erotic, sadomasochistic and depraved escapades. Events unfold episodically, but not logical —characters suffer various indignities, danger and even death only to appear later unscathed. The most dreamlike of Fellini’s films—an accomplishment in itself—it ends eloquently, mid-sentence, like Petronius’s fragmentary manuscript.
