Michelangelo Antonioni Carlo Di Palma Monica Vitti | Red Desert | 1964

Original US press kit for the 1964 film, designed and printed by Cinematografica Federiz in Rome. An unusual pressbook, with a full-color card wrapper (evoking the strong Technicolor style of the film) and pages laid in loosely, with tissue guards in between the page gatherings. Included is a rather dense essay by Antonioni written exclusively for the pressbook.

Antonioni’s first color film, and the last in a quartet of films made between 1959 and 1964 about women in modern culture (preceded by “L’avventura,” “La notte,” and L’eclisse”), and the lie of happiness and better living. This entry, very much an antecedent to Todd Haynes’ “Safe”(1995), focuses on Vitti, a woman trying to survive in the modern world of cultural neurosis and existential doubt. Di Palma’s cinematography remains legendary today for its stunningly colored industrial landscapes, beautiful and yet indirectly evoking Vitti’s unease, alienation, and vivid perceptions.

Folding card wrappers, 12 x 9 inches. Pages laid in, with tissue guards between gatherings. Near Fine.

Criterion Collection 522.

CRITERION COLLECTION #707: IL SORPASSO (Dino Risi)

Buried toward the end of the liner notes for Criterion’s new dual-format release of Il Sorpasso is a brief excerpt from the memoir of its director, Dino Risi—a sample that succinctly captures the soul of both the film and the wave of post-war Italian comedies it’s come to represent. Borrowed from a chapter called “He died of the illness called life,” the passage concludes with Risi sharing the pep talk he gave Il Sorpasso star Vittorio Gassman during one of their last conversations, when the once irrepressible actor was near the end of his life and had long since lost his lust for it:

When I am depressed, I imagine that I’m dead and the lord of the hereafter has granted me a week’s vacation to spend on this earth. I can assure you that everything I see seems wonderful, even the dirty streets, the stench of fuel oil, ugly women, rude drivers, the weak coffee at certain bars, debates on TV.

Vittorio looked at me, smiled his lovely sad smile, and said: “It’s not so easy.”
