Blow-Up (1966)
— During the swinging 1960s, a London photographer believes he inadvertently photographed evidence of a murder only to have the evidence mysteriously disappear. Professional photographer Thomas saw nothing. And he saw everything. Enlargements of pictures he secretly took of a romantic couple in the park reveal a murder in progress. Or do they? Winner of 1966 Best Picture and Best Director Awards from the then-new National Society of Film Critics (as well as Oscar-nominated for Best Director and Best Screenplay), director Michelangelo Antonioni‘s Blow-Up is an influential. stylish study of paranoid intrigue and disorientation. It is also a time capsule of mod London, a mindscape of the era’s fashions, free love, parties. music (Herbie Hancock wrote the score and The Yardbirds riff at a club) and hip languor.

L'Avventura (1960)
— Michelangelo Antonioni invented a new film grammar with this masterwork. An iconic piece of challenging 1960s cinema and a gripping narrative on its own terms, L’avventura concerns the enigmatic disappearance of a young woman during a yachting trip off the coast of Sicily, and the search taken up by her disaffected lover (Gabriele Ferzetti) and best friend (Monica Vitti, in her breakout role). Antonioni’s controversial international sensation is a gorgeously shot tale of modern ennui and spiritual isolation.

Red Desert (1964)
— Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1960s panoramas of contemporary alienation were decade-defining artistic events, and Red Desert, his first color film, is perhaps his most epochal. This provocative look at the spiritual desolation of the technological age—about a disaffected woman, brilliantly portrayed by Antonioni muse Monica Vitti, wandering through a bleak industrial landscape beset by power plants and environmental toxins, and tentatively flirting with her husband’s coworker, played by Richard Harris—continues to keep viewers spellbound. With one startling, painterly composition after another—of abandoned fishing cottages, electrical towers, looming docked ships—Red Desert creates a nearly apocalyptic image of its time, and confirms Antonioni as cinema’s preeminent poet of the modern age.

Zabriskie Point (1970)
— On the run from the police after a student riot escalates into violence, anarchist dissident Mark goes on the run, steals a private plane and flies off into the Californian desert. There, he meets Daria — a young woman driving through the expanse on the way to meet a real estate executive with grand ideas of building a resort amidst the sands. The pair join up and head on a journey of revelation in Death Valley.
