The Prey

As a prelude… I’m currently taking a fantastic Film Theory class offed by Harvard’s Visual and Environmental Studies Department.

Le amiche (1955)

Antonioni throws us into the eye of the storm, within a circle of love addicts personified by a clique of cruel women.

The Lady Without Camelias (1953)

La signora senza camelie could also be translated as “Melodrama and Film Sets”. Antonioni’s scathing takedown of the Italian film industry follows an actress called Clara (Lucia Bosé) as she navigates a world of seedy moviemakers and greedy agents, exclusively personified by possessive men. 143 more words

Several years ago I read that Michelangelo on his deathbed said: “It is a pity I am dying when I am just beginning to know my craft.” He was not young, had been working at his art for a long time. 306 more words
