Summary: An emotionally acute and devastating deconstruction of the interpersonal travails of the bourgeoisie, La Notte remains at once the most bracingly concrete and amorously diffuse work of Antonioni's structuralist period.
Conclusion: Michelangelo Antonioni's 'La Notte' is a haunting and intoxicating examination of apathy and isolation. Through striking compositions and a hypnotic rhythm, the director gives visual form to the tragic space that lingers between us.
Conclusion: I am convinced that those of you who have been patiently waiting for La Notte to appear on Blu-ray will be very pleased with Criterion's upcoming release. In North America, there was never a competent DVD release of this wonderful film so the Blu-ray release is indeed a very important upgrade.
