Alienation has never been more gorgeously indulged than in Michelangelo Antonioni’s widescreen spectacular—the polarizing sensation of the 1960 Cannes Film Festival, a mystery that, lavishing neorealist attention on the rich and aimless, casually abandons its ostensible premise midway through. This provocative voyage into the void brought the filmmaker’s style to maturity and reinvented movies in the process. It’s being rereleased in a restored 35mm print showing at the Film Forum in New York, and Cinefamily in Los Angeles.
One showing per day at Cinefamily. Tickets and schedule available online.
