Michelangelo Antonioni dies at 94

Ingmar Bergman, it turns out, was not the only film giant to pass away Sunday. Italian writer-director Michelangelo Antonioni also died, at his home in Rome. He made fewer films than Bergman — less than 40 — but his place in film history is equally secure, thanks to works like 1960’s L’Avventura, 1961’s La Notte, 1962’s L’Eclisse, and 1966’s Blow-Up. He suffered a stroke in 1985, but still managed to make films, including 1995’s Beyond the Clouds (co-directed with Wim Wenders) and some documentary shorts. Antonioni was 94.
