Antonioni Takes On Hitchcock's Love Triangles

Narrative Consequence vs. Symbolic Circumstance

Alfred Hitchcock and Michelangelo Antonioni each have an affinity for featuring love triangles in their films. For Hitchcock, each reincarnation of the love triangle features a variation on the characters involved and the motivation for their relationships, but each holds on to an established narrative structure to present the displacement of a protagonist into a foreign environment, develop a love triangle, then consequentially destroy of one of its members and inflict harm on the environment. 1,933 more words

I tempi stanno cambiando…

Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo) strolls the streets of Rome like a tightrope walker balancing between times past, present, and future. He’s just turned 65 and a revelation from forty years past puts him in a self-reflective state of mind. 180 more words

Antonioni on Antonioni


I don’t know anything about the way a film is born, nothing about the manner of it, the lying-in, the ‘big bang’, the first three minutes. 99 more words

Jerry Garcia - "Love Scene" (Zabriskie Point Soundtrack 1970)

Perhaps the most ideal vision of a hippie paradise is the love scene depicted in Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1970 film Zabriskie Point. I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen it, but let’s just say there’s a whole lotta desert lovin’ goin’ on. 202 more words

Country Blue (1973)

Redneck sleaze. Apparently, it’s a genre. Hey, don’t look at me that way. I wasn’t a teenager in the 70′s, there were no drive-in theaters in my country (we did our romantic shenanigans by the beach or up on a hill) and video stores (or, god forbid, local TV stations) wouldn’t acquire this type of movie if it meant their lives. 692 more words
