- Sat-Sun, Aug 10-11Dir. Michelangelo Antonioni, USA/Italy, 1970, 110 min., R, Archival 35mm Print, Part of Weekend Classics: Michelangelo Antonioni
Showtimes will be posted on the Monday prior to opening.
Antonioni's only American film, a visually stunning examination of the American counterculture of the late 1960s, opens at a meeting of college activists planning a student strike. Among them is Mark, a rebel searching for a cause who, after being involved in a bloody campus confrontation with police, steals an airplane and flies over a desert where he meets Daria, the pot-smoking secretary to a real estate executive. In the midst of the arid surroundings, Mark and Daria fall in love. Decades after its widely panned 1970 release, the film underwent a critical reexamination, prompted in part by its cinematography and a remarkable score featuring music from Pink Floyd, Jerry Garcia, Kaleidoscope, the Rolling Stones, John Fahey, the Youngbloods and Patti Page.
“[Antonioni's] beautiful handling of 'Scope compositions and moods has many lingering aftereffects, and the grand and beautiful apocalyptic finale is downright spectacular.” —Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
