" Isolation, loneliness, fear, and mental degradation in an industrial wasteland. That is Red Desert in a sentence. When I watch a Michelangelo Antonioni film, I expect it to be a little tedious, a little drawn out, a little wordless and open ended. The man is an amazing cinematographer; he really knows how to film landscapes exuberantly and gracefully until they become part of the character's psyche, an integral piece of the story and character's life. Anyways, Monica Vitti plays a mothe"

"07.12. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Michelangelo Antonioni Beauty and boredom in the same proportion. Gorgeous locations, colours and Monica Vitti. Some brilliant scenes (such as the "girl on the beach" story by Vitti) and interesting dialogue writing ("There's something terrible about reality, but I don't know what it is") but the whole just doesn't really click for me. Blow-Up is the only Antonioni film so far that really did click :( "

Elokuvapäiväkirjuli 2012 (235 movies items)

"15/07/2012 Antonionin elokuvien visuaalisuus on jotain aivan käsittämätöntä. Red Desert on Antonionin ensimmäinen värielokuva ja on myöskin yksi kauneimmista värielokuvista koskaan. Eikä elokuva olisi läheskään niin värikäs mitä se nyt on, ellei tinkimätön perfektionisti olisi maalauttanut maisemiaan itseään tyydyttäviksi. Teollistunut yhteiskunta näytetään tylysti rappeutuvan, kun maalit varisevat seinistä, vesistöt saastuvat ja sairas Giulianan kärsii hakien omaa pai"
