8½ vs. Sweet Smell of Success

I may change my mind on picking Sweet Smell at some point, but on one watch each, Sweet Smell is a coherent masterwork with no obvious fraying, and 8 1/2 felt a little uneven to me by comparison.

Sweet Smell is a lot of fun, especially from a script perspective, and very swanky, but it's not particularly profound. 8 1/2 has a lot to say, and says it with style and humor.
