Farewell Michelangelo Antonioni

Wrote the blog on Ingmar and then next day found that the great Italian film man died with hours of Ingmar.

Michelangelo made films that were difficult to understand BUT they were sure interesting. Monica Vitti was so good in the first films of his that I saw.

Then he was making films using English players. "Blow-up" had so much strange stuff. Was there a murder? and the ending with David Hemmings picking up the "imaginary" ball to throw back to the people miming a tennis match. Zabriskie Point I was completely at sea - what was it about but the scenery.
