Day 151: The Italian Adventure

The Italian Adventure

Hooked up my brand-new, just out-of-the-box, Philips American Blu-Ray player, into the Australian transformer, inserted the Criterion “L’Avventura” disc.

I’m ready for Antonioni Week. The big one on the BFI (Sight & Sound list) is of course L’Avventura (1960) but La Notte is on Kubrick’s ten best films list and L’Eclisse features on many Top Ten lists. This is the film my friend Buckley was telling me had more walkouts at Cannes than his film, Bliss in 1985.
