What confuses the most, is that he and Ingmar Bergman died on the same day.
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.

L'avventura
Blowup


Antonioni leaves me more confused than amused.

Hmmm yes I am baffled after my latest addition...

L'avventura
Blowup
Red Desert
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.

Il Grido (1957)
* * * - Okay
I'm not a fan of Italian neorealism, but this also has Antonioni's existential angst. Typical of the director, it's not a film about what happens but how the characters react to what happens. Interesting to see Steve Cochran starring in an Italian film when I watched him in Storm Warning earlier this year.


Le Amiche (1955)
* *
One film earlier is one step back for the director. Mostly a Douglas Sirk style melodrama, though it also plays like The Women with all the laughs lost in translation. I had trouble keeping the five lead females and their stories apart and I mostly didn't care. However, there would be scenes where they would go and get lost someplace (like a beach) and you can feel Antonioni's talent rising to the surface.
