The List

It seems fitting that every frame should be rich with sorrow.

Little White Lies

Red Desert is Antonioni's clearest, most striking statement of purpose - and one of cinema's great films.

Almost half a century on, Red Desert remains a film of rare beauty and brooding erotic intensity.

Savor every image and every sound. Few directors have created audiovisual landscapes as lush as Antonioni's.

A strikingly original, melancholy work executed with painterly precision and still one of the more underrated films from this innovative director.

The film's most spellbinding sequence depicts a pantheistic, utopian fantasy of innocence, which she recounts to her ailing son.

Combustible Celluloid

The effect is perhaps even more astounding than in his black and white films. Now, more so than using just shapes and spaces, Antonioni now gets to play with bright colors, and lack of colors.

Perhaps the most extraordinary and riveting film of Antonioni's entire career; and correspondingly impossible to synopsise.

[Antonioni] casts a hypnotic spell, his every frame is impeccably composed and painted... and his imagery stripped of extraneous details...

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

In some ways, this is Art House 101 stuff -- the kind of movie you just know is good for you, because it's so dull and depressing.That, however, is merely one aspect of it.

Philip French
Observer [UK]

This flawed masterpiece is a political film, anger seething beneath the seductively beautiful surface, and a contrast to the surrounding devastation is provided by a simple fable told to a small boy by his mother.

Thematically, Red Desert is a distillation of Antonioni's preferred themes and imagery: alienation, anxiety, modern life, and industrialized landscapes.

What a mysterious film it is, with much to perplex and even exasperate, but much to fascinate as well.

Antonioni's sense of design and how the environment inevitably influences his characters is masterly.

Not an easy film to watch because of its very deliberate pacing, but well worth the effort.
