IL GRIDO' DVD, Michelangelo Antonioni (1957), New & Sealed
aka 'The Outcry'
aka 'Grido, Il'
Shot in Antonioni's native Po Valley region near Bologna, Il Grido focuses on individuals of the common classes rather then the bourgeoisie of his later films. From this humble and unpretentious subject matter, Antonioni fashions a spellbinding motion picture that keenly demonstrates his profound cinematic talents. His hypnotic compositions of bleak industrial landscapes enshrouded in grey fog provide the perfect tableaux for characters haunted by emotional detachment and psychological torment.
