The Ancients stayed close to Nature, thought with her, and without extraordinary contrivances, they played with matter.

I'd of course seen and loved "La Strada" and "Nights of Cabiria," but somehow Fellini's "Il Bidone" languished in the dregs at the bottom of my Netflix queue. I loved it, particularly Broderick Crawford's performance as an aging swindler whose conscience gets the better of him. A great example of Fellini's early realist style, with a lot of humor mix into the pathos.
