It is a well known fact that Fellini began experimentation with LSD in the mid 60s, the psychedelic influence can be strongly seen in the set design and wardrobe. Satyricon is also a stylistic departure from his earlier films. In the beginning (04:55) Vernacchio dramatically places a small black tab onto his tongue and begins to scream, this is likely a representation of LSD and the subsequent adventures could be interpreted as a 'trip'. There is no question LSD played just as important of a role in this film as Jung's theory of the collective unconscious. -Ham


I believe that this was Fellini's only English-language film. Worth mentioning? Pemboid (talk) 19:59, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Max Born[edit]

It looks as if there needs to be a disambiguation page for Max Born, as the actor in Satyricon is not the famous physicist. If I knew how to fix this, I would. If nobody has done it by the time I find out, which may well be a long time, then I will do it. The Real Walrus 08:38, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Who played the older and larger Enotea?[edit]

Does anyone know if there's a reason she's not credited (unlike her younger version)? - (talk) 12:28, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Somebody updated the article to claim

Encolpio falls under a spell where his sexual prowess is restored to him by Enotea in the form of a monumental African goddess

I've never ever heard this statement before. Every site that reviews this part treats this woman like the older Enotea (whereas the younger version was young because she appeared in a flashback and not in the present). If it's a goddess and not just older Enotea, then there was no point to visit Enotea to begin with. The whole idea was to visit Enotea specifically because her curse (which had nothing to do with any goddess) may be the Encolpio's cure. Why did they to visit Enotea if it was the goddess they wanted to visit? It also adds a supernatural theme to the film.
But just in case the editor was actually right, did the goddess have a name and who played her? - (talk) 23:02, 2 August 2008 (UTC)


The plot needs to be changed. The details are out of order and in some cases wrong. For example, the Caesar is killed AFTER Encolpio arrives and is married on Lichus' ship. The soldiers do not break up the marriage, but kill Lichus and take his stuff. The person who wrote the summary did not pay close attention to the details of the film.

I agree but up to a point. I watched the film again on DVD today and then made various updates and corrections in the timeline, in particular, the Lichas episode. However, I confirm that, for the most part, attention to detail has been paid to the film's plot - and encourage anyone to improve on it.--Jumbolino (talk) 15:10, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

General Matters[edit]

For such a fantastic film, I am disappointed by how little discussion there is. Anyway I wanted to sya that I edited the names to their correct spelling, declension etc. in keeping with English conventions of transliterating Roman names. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ðœð (talkcontribs) 03:23, 18 October 2011 (UTC)
