New on Video: ‘L’Avventura’

11 December 2014 7:34 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Written by Michelangelo Antonioni, Elio Bartolini, and Tonino Guerra

Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni

Italy, 1960

Michelangelo Antonioni’s enigmatic and brilliant L’Avventura is one of the benchmarks for international art cinema, a somewhat disputable designation that was, nevertheless, very much in vogue at the time of its release. Take the 1960 Cannes Film Festival for example, where L’Avventura debuted to one of the event’s most divisive responses, with initially more boos than cheers greeting this affront to conventional film narrative and form. Yet, this was also the year of Fellini’s La Dolce Vita (the Palme d’Or winner), Chukhray’s Ballad of a Soldier, Bergman’s The Virgin Spring, Kalatozov’s Letter Never Sent, and Buñuel’s The Young One, to name just a few of the other titles at the festival, where, ultimately, L’Avventura came away with the Jury Prize (shared with Ichikawa’s »

‘L’Assassino’ Blu-ray Review

30 July 2014 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Marcello Mastroianni, Michelle Presle, Salvo Randone, Cristina Gaioni, Andrea Checchi, Francesco Grandjacquet, Marco Mariani, Franco Ressel | Written by Elio Petri, Tonino Guerra | Directed by Elio Petri

When I think of the Italian film industry I often think of horror and the so-called Spaghetti Westerns but in fact the industry is bigger and far more impressive than that.  In the sixties there was a golden era of film making, true to form Arrow Films under its Arrow Academy banner have released one of the most noteworthy movies of that time withL’Assassino.

L’Assassino is the tale of Alfredo Martelli (Mastroianni) a playboy antiques dealer arrested under suspicion of murder of his older lover Adalgisa (Presle).  Protesting his innocence to the police his please fall on deaf ears as they increase the pressure on him to confess, convinced without a shadow of a doubt that he is the killer.

New on Video: ‘L’eclisse’

26 June 2014 10:56 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni

Written by Michelangelo Antonioni and Tonino Guerra

Italy, 1962

L’eclisse is the third film in Michelangelo Antonioni’s so-called “Trilogy of Alienation,” the preceding works having been L’avventura and La notte. (With justification, some would argue that Red Desert, his next film, truly rounds out what would then be considered a tetralogy). While the three films taken together do explore many of the same themes relating to spiritual emptiness, the disbanding of relationships, and a struggle to communicate in an increasingly modern and alienating world, L’eclisse differs from the two earlier works most notably in its increasingly experimental style and its blatant departures from conventional storytelling and formal design.

A tumultuous relationship begins L’eclisse, as we arrive in medias res, near the end of the rather unpleasantly crumbling relationship between Riccardo (Francisco Rabal) and Vittoria (Monica Vitti). Inside Riccardo’s claustrophobic home, »

New on Video: Andrei Tarkovsky’s ‘Nostalghia’

Nostalghia (1983)

Written by Andrei Tarkovsky and Tonino Guerra

Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky

Italy, 1983

Nostalghia was Andrei Tarkovsky’s penultimate film, and the 1983 movie, made for Italian television, has the tone and scope of a work of contemplation and austere topicality, not at all uncommon for an artist in his or her later portions of life. The notion of this frequent tendency, to broach issues of dire seriousness in concluding creations, doesn’t work seamlessly with Tarkovsky, though. To begin with, while Nostalghia may have been his second-to-last feature, he was only 51 at the time (he tragically passed away just 3 years and one film later). In addition, this type of weighty subject matter had been common thematic territory for Tarkovsky since his first films in the early 1960s. And though only having made seven feature films, each approach was a spiritual level of visual, verbal, and atmospheric transcendence not regularly attempted by many other filmmakers, »

Nostalghia | Review

20 January 2014 5:36 PM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Director: Andrei Tarkovsky Writer(s): Andrei Tarkovsky (screenplay), Tonino Guerra (screenplay) Starring: Oleg Yankovsky, Domiziana Giordano, Erland Josephson, Patrizia Terreno Russian writer Andrei Gorchakov (Oleg Yankovsky) travels to Italy to study the life of Russian composer Pavel Sosnovsky a man that would ultimately take his own life upon returning to his native Russia. Andrei brings along an interpreter, Eugenia (Domiziana Giordano), and together they travel to a convent to gaze upon its ancient art and other ruins. There should be joy of some sort in such an adventure, but there is only isolation, both physical and mental. Once in Italy, Andrei begins to unravel and to make sense of his journey becomes an exercise in futility. Let me begin by stating I am not going to attempt to understand completely what Nostalghia means or what it meant to Andrei Tarkovsky. In fact, this is the only Tarkovsky film I've »
