movie stills: red desert

You know those movies that are so beautiful you could just as easily watch them on mute? Well, since I got in kind of a rut with my movie interiors I though I'd start a new series of movie stills for movies just like this one I watched this past weekend. I am a huge fan of Michelangelo Antonioni after seeing Blow-Up and then L'avventura and L'eclisse. Red Desert lived up to my expectations. It was so beautifully shot, just like looking through a book of photographs. With the foggy atmosphere mixed with the industrial and rural setting combined with 1960's Italian wardrobe (and Monica Vitti's unusually beautiful features) this blew me away.
