A bleak and desolate film, directed by Michelangelo Antonioni with an eye to the emotive powers of the barren landscape.
The camera's spare, stunning compositions and the tone of loss and disaffection anticipate Antonioni's later, brilliant explorations of bourgeois anomie.
A fairly lucid story that puts no undue strain on a viewer's imagination or intellect.
If Antonioni's assuredness isn't yet in place, Il Grido remains a key transitional work, with remarkable photography, fluid camerawork, and a typically unforgettable finale ranking among its most notable virtues.
A view of the world seen through the eyes of a man in despair, in which the time is always winter, the weather perma- nently foggy and even moments of beauty or gaiety make their ironic comment on the rest of life's sadness.
The two American actors, Cochran and Blair, seem to lack any understanding of the director's methods and deliver the least satisfying performances to be found in any Antonioni film.
Visually brilliant drama.
Steve Cochran gives a superb performance.
One of many duds from Michelangelo Antonioni.
The beautifully desolate cinematography is rich in its gray color palette.
An insufferably dull, outdated and pointless film that forces us to be in the company of a hateful macho (who we couldn't feel any sympathy for) as his life is surrounded by several weak women who have no personality. Besides, the ending is simply ridiculous.
Very gray and desolate. What I liked about this film was the strange glimmer of hope present throughout Aldo's journey despite such despair. The use of music throughout is pretty cool too. Strange, absurd, and depressing film.
Despairing and poetic. 'Loneliness is such a drag...'
