Antonioni’s 1960s “trilogy of alienation”


France, Italy | 1962 | Michelangelo Antonioni

THE ECLIPSE film still

The stunning final entry in Antonioni’s 1960s “trilogy of alienation” (following L’Avventura and La Notte) focuses on a Roman woman (Monica Vitti) who leaves her lover of four years (Francisco Rabal) for a fling with a young stockbroker (Alain Delon). But she really seems to prefer solitude to a relationship. Antonioni’s great opus concludes with a unique sequence—58 shots lasting a total of seven minutes, without dialogue or even people—that has been discussed for decades. Subtitles. Blu-ray. 126 min.
