We quickly realise with Satyricon that conventional expectations will be relentlessly overturned. After a brief adjustment to this the viewer must accept Felini's notion of storytelling, of sensation over order, of spectacle as rationale and then begin to operate and orientate themselves to his world. This active adjustment by necesity involves the viewer more deeply in the experience as it requires one to enter the world of the film more fully.
