Subject: Re: Antonioni
Yes, it was nice to see Antonioni alive and crying at the Academy Awards, but
what about the perverse way in which Jack Nicholson introduced him?  I noticed
that the speed-of-light survey of his career included a clip from _The
Passenger_, but I did not hear Nicholson apologizing for buying the rights to
the film and then preventing people from seeing it.  I don't recall being that
impressed by _The Passenger_ except for the amazing trick at the end when the
camera seems to float through a window and then turn around and look back at
the place from which it has impossibly emerged.
