I guess I should've kept my mouth shut about Michelangelo Antonioni being the last surviving member of a generation of directors. He died late yesterday in Rome, at the ripe age of 94.
Antonioni, who was left partly paralyzed after a stroke in 1985, is remembered primarily for his depiction of swinging London in the legendary film "Blow Up", in which David Hemmings plays a dandy photographer who may or may not have photographed a murder in the background of one of his pictures. It was Antonioni's first English-language film, followed by the less succesful, though now a cult-classic, "Zabriskie Point".
Antonioni was still active in cinema, making a segment of the film "Eros" in 2004, for example.
This is a pretty bad week for cinema, I do say!
Damn! Yup! You should have kept your mouth shut! ( or shouldn't have written that, whatever...) he was one of my favourite directors, I have to admit!! And, man!, Blow-Up was truly a masterpiece! RIP Mikey!

It might work on them, too... silver bullets and wooden stakes have failed thus far.
Now, now, Zebonka! Why would you want that? I mean who else on QZ post videos on youtube with them playing keyboards half naked, with bigger tits than Pammy Anderson? as for the other one, well, he's our only hope for saving music and the US from nazis!
