molto bene

November 23, 2009

nico and i stayed in last night to watch my latest movie from the library–michelangelo antonioni’s l’avventura. the shots were incredible, slow, moody, achey. the film is a great exploration of characters and their relationships, and yet another glimpse into the unhappy, tumultuous lives of the upper class. monica vitti looks stunning atop italian...
