Renato,
 
I sympathize with your deep feeling about Antonioni.  A lot of people
writing on this list have neglected to mention, if they noticed, that
Jack Nicholson was responsible, in fact, for a MAJOR collaboration with
Antonioni, because his performance was very much at the core of THE
PASSENGER.  I thought it interesting to see that shot on the screen
behind him, and to see his face.  Those who think he was cynical, I
think, have entirely missed the fact that he was himself on the verge of
tears at that moment.
