Austin Film Society: The Creative in Crisis: 8 1/2

Mastroianni plays a film director who's just had a huge hit but is struggling to find an idea for his next project. Between fits and starts, he goes back through his life and confronts all his demons. And what a cavalcade of demons! This new AFS series has been curated by the Chronicle's Kimberley Jones, who will present each film. For more on the series, see "The Pen May Be Mightier Than the Sword, but Sometimes It Makes You Want to Slit Your Wrists," p. xx. Read a full review of 8 1/2.
