1- Can someone please explain to me how to watch a film by Antonioni? I’m all ears.
2- Thanks to the persistence of my dear friend Betsy, I watched Eyes Wide Shut again for the first time since it came out. I no longer think it is the hot mess I thought it was back then, and I will grant that there are some pretty impressive set pieces (not necessarily the orgy scene!). I still question what it’s all about and why Kubrick spent so much time obsessing over it. Since he seemed to obsess over everything, I guess this is a moot point!
3- Much Ado About Nothing should be required viewing for anyone who wants to film or update Shakespeare. A lovely, authentic reading of this heartbreaking and hilarious play.
