  3. nandafr's rating of the film Red Desert

    The mist of anxiety hung above the industrial city where Gulianna lives has been haunting me for days now.

  5. DenoResandono's rating of the film Red Desert

    RED DESERT is a poetry from director Michelangelo Antonioni about industrial world and the environment around it. He also adds some elements such as alienation, loneliness, and existential problems. RED DESERT said to us that it's okay if you think that industrial place could give some bad effect. But we must be able to see that there must be a beauty beneath. Monica Vitti is amazing and very interesting as usual...

  7. Mtume Gant's rating of the film Red Desert

    One of the best-photographed films one will ever see. Add its nuanced depiction of power, need and trauma and you have one of the masterpieces of cinema.

  8. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Red Desert

    When Monica Vitti is up against the wall asking for everyone who has ever loved her to make a wall in front of her... mood.

  9. Nachtreich's rating of the film Red Desert

  10. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Red Desert

    A woman in a modern desert, her mind abuzz, but surrounded by men who are drawn to her body. That description fits just about every character Monica Vitti ever played for Antonioni, but this may be its most potent incarnation, purely for how the addition of a frenzied mental illness makes her the only one in step with a chilling industrialized world. An immediate masterpiece for a director who is so often obscure.

  11. LAB ARBUTA's rating of the film Red Desert

  12. MisterColo93's rating of the film Red Desert

    4.5/5 My favourite Antonioni. Capolavoro straordinario.

  13. CinemaHouse Productions's rating of the film Red Desert

    It's funny how Antonioni can express both the poetic and disparaging side of industrialization, call it "spiritual desolation." Almost an apocalyptic future, then again most of Antonioni's films are like abstract art. With captivating and intimate performances of Monica Vitti and the late great Richard Harris.

  14. Jason's rating of the film Red Desert

    RED DESERT probably remains my favourite Antonioni. One could in the strictest clinical sense say the film is about neurosis, not be wrong, and still almost entirely miss the point. This is a jarring leap forward for Antonioni in that the implications of technological rationalism are made devastatingly explicit. The casually worst in me is there in rational Richard Harris's frigid entanglement w/ tormented Vitti.

  15. Gioele's rating of the film Red Desert

  16. Walker's rating of the film Red Desert

    A great modernist film. It is very sculptural in its images. It keeps coming up in my mind, which is always a good sign.

  17. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film Red Desert

  18. gld48's rating of the film Red Desert

    I didnt like this. It's a beauty to look at but literally none of Antonioni's films have impressed me yet (maybe Zabriskie)

  19. Farukbaggins's rating of the film Red Desert

    beautiful anxiety, subtle , marvelous cinematography

  20. P D Dawson's rating of the film Red Desert

    From the opening shots to the last scene, this film tinkers on the edge of sanity. Both unnerving and edgy, it must be one of the earliest films to address mental illness this way. The film is also daring and refuses to gather speed for restful audiences, instead it plods along slowly, casting its very unique spell on all those who allow themselves to be conscious of its many depths. Monica Vitti is spellbinding.

  23. FISCHER's rating of the film Red Desert

    Giuliana, épouse d'un directeur d'usine, a été très éprouvée par un récent accident de voiture. Il lui arrive souvent d'errer parmi les machines. Elle y rencontre Corrado Zeller, le meilleur ami de son mari qui lui aussi se sent perdu : ils sont vivement attirés l'un par l'autre ..... www.cinefiches.com

  24. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Red Desert

    Rewatch after about five years. By '64 Antonioni was synonymous with fashionable 'alienation' in cinema but here he pushed film language to the point of 'alienating' the viewer (blurred foregrounds, beams splitting frames, etc.) and created an absurdist vision of modernity that has corroded the world down into a new dark age (aphrodisiacs, disease panic, portrayal of food, etc.). A foil to Resnais' Chant du Styrene.
