"A filmmaker is a man like any other; and yet his life is not the same. . . . This is, I think, a special way of being in contact with reality." Or so says Michelangelo Antonioni, the legendary filmmaker behind the stark landscapes and social alienation of "Blow-Up" and "L'Avventura," who here reveals his idiosyncratic relationship with reality in "The Architecture of Vision,"
Through autobiographical sketches, theoretical essays, interviews, and conversations with such luminaries as Jean-Luc Godard and Alberto Moravia, this compelling volume explores the director's unique brand of narrative-defying cinema as well as the motivations and anxieties of the man behind the camera.
""The Architecture of Vision" provides a filmmaker's absorbing reflections and insights on his career. . . . Antonioni's comments . . . deepen and humanize a sometimes cerebral book."--"Publishers Weekly"
"[Antonioni's] erudition is astonishing . . . few of his peers can match his verbal articulateness."--"Film Quarterly"
"This valuable resource offers entree to material difficult to gain access to under other circumstances."--"Library Journal"
