Synopsis

Michelangelo Antonioni, who died in 2007, was one of cinema's greatest modernist filmmakers. The films in his black and white trilogy of the early 1960s - L'avventura, La Notte, L'eclisse - are justly celebrated for their influential, gorgeously austere style. But in this book, Murray Pomerance demonstrates why the color films that followed are, in fact, Antonioni's greatest works. Writing in an accessible style that evokes Antonioni's expansive use of space, Pomerance discusses "The Red Desert", "Blow-Up", "Professione: Reporter (The Passenger)", "Zabriskie Point", "Identification of a Woman", "The Mystery of Oberwald", "Beyond the Clouds", and "The Dangerous Thread of Things" to analyze the director's subtle and complex use of color. Infusing his open-ended inquiry with both scholarly and personal reflection, Pomerance evokes the full range of sensation, nuance, and equivocation that became Antonioni's signature.
