Red Desert

7/18/1998; 116 minutes

A masterpiece of color cinematography, Red Desert uses its carefully rendered color scheme to heighten the emotional impact of Michelangelo Antonioni's portrayal of the alienating effect of the modern world on one woman, while extending the boundaries of film art in its use of color, sound and setting.

(Italy, 1964, Color, 120 mins, dir. Michelangelo Antonioni, with Monica Vitti & Richard Harris, Italian with English subtitles)
