    had to make my mind up on it before returning the disc to the library. it's pretty damn brilliant while still too slow but those last few minutes are cinema at its most stimulating.
    (also somehow this is the first time i'm ever listening to an audio commentary for a movie and couldn't think of a better one cause damn i needed some context)

    MASTERPIECE!!

    By far the most engaging film of Antonioni I’ve seen so far. Maybe this ticks off all my biases as if it wasn’t enough to be a movie about photography that shows a brutally honest underbelly to the profession it’s also the blueprint for Blow Out and confronts head on the ethic and responsibility that comes with the creation of images through a meditation of objective vs subjective gaze. In other words, this is 100% my shit. Structurally pretty interesting…
