LEclisse Antonioni
L'Eclisse (1962)
Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni
Antonioni’s films are affecting, alluring, unmistakably auteuristic affairs weaving tales of love tinged with quotidian terror; of societal disquiet as both political and personal; of urbanity, of domesticity, of great wide opens; of the fragile territories of human interactions, endeavors, emotions. His films are also, always, exquisitely shot—his breathing stills, so suggestively laden, are insurmountable—and brilliantly scored—not least for how he deploys the celluloidal sear of silences. Part of BAM's Booed at Cannes series, this Special Jury Prize winner offers unforgettable visions of all of the above. Paul D'Agostino (May 10 at BAM)
