| Beautiful early Fellini masterwork
Il Bidone is as good as anything Fellini has ever done. A masterwork with brilliant performances, stunningly beautiful shots and a wonderful script, this film tells more about Italy than any dozen other films. It all centers on Broderick Crawford's amazing acting -- the pinnacle of his career. An achingly wonderful film and a monumental performance. His character is so nasty and so bad -- yet still you feel sorry for him. But all the roles are filled with wonderful actors, down to the smallest bit part. Some of these scenes can't be rivaled anywhere -- the one between Crawford (dressed as a fake Monsignor) and the girl on crutches is one of the best bits of cinema in history.
