If you’re at all a fan of the director Michelangelo Antonioni (and if you’re not, I would like to meet you, because you must be very strange) then you might enjoy this article in the BFI’s Sight & Sound.

Were there time and/or world enough I would expand on several points discussed in the article. There isn’t and I won’t. But feel free, after reading the piece, to imagine what I might have said.

    I liked Z Pt., but things blowed up real good at the end and I'm very 'merican that way.

    John Fahey slags MA in his book How Bluegrass Music Destroyed My Life. Did not like the guy. But then he slags a lot of things. And he speaks as a someone who nonetheless proceeds to tune his acoustic to a so forth and record music for use in ZP. Which is a good deal more than just facile slagging/inciting folks to kick in their flat screens.

    A lot of people seem not to have liked M.A. as a human person. I didn't know him. And I do like Z.P., just not as much as, for example, The Passenger. Or any of his other films.

    I also like John Fahey. I mean, I like his music. Maybe he's a nice guy, too.
