Michelangelo Antonioni, R.I.P.


The film world lost two greats yesterday - Bergman and Antonioni. Actress Sarah Miles, who appeared in Antonioni's classic Blow Up, told the BBC today that Antonioni was "a rogue and a tyrant and a brilliant man". Woody Allen called Bergman the single greatest film artist and joked about his desire not to die on a sunny day - "I can only hope it was overcast and he got the weather he wanted."
