Godard Beware!

Holy smokes! Michelangelo Antonioni, who was another one of the big names in art house cinema, has just died at 94. I don't remember much about Blow Up, but Claire and I watched The Passenger in Paris last summer and we both left the theatre feeling like we had seen something unexpected and eye-opening- have you ever seen a work of art that pushed you to redefine what could be done in that medium? It wasn't a masterpiece exactly; it just went places with the narrative that I really hadn't seen before.
