Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film La notte

Upon a second viewing, my view of the film completely changed for the better. I can safely say that this is perhaps Antonioni's best study of depression as well as being his overall best film. Marcello Mastroianni and Jeanne Moreau give their best performances here as tragic characters destined for misery. As someone who was in a state of depression, I cannot think of a film that illustrates it better- Bravo!
