Still from the film Il deserto rosso (The Red Desert), 1964, directed by Michelangelo Antonioni
This movie was recommended to me when I was a senior in college by my critique teachers. It still ranks as one of the most beautiful movies I’ve ever seen. It was Antonioni’s first color film. His use of color is absolutely stunning and incredibly powerful.
Even though I haven’t seen this in many years, I still think about it often. You should all watch it, if you haven’t already.
