The Red Desert

Dir. Michelangelo Antonioni (1964). Antonioni's first color film is almost pure science fiction. Everything exudes a chemical glow, driving the movie's tragic, agitated heroine (Monica Vitti) past distraction into madness: “There's something terrible about reality, and I don't know what.” Positing a protagonist who is allergic to the world, this gorgeous movie is the prototype for Todd Haynes's Safe.
