What a sad way to end July of 2007. We have lost the two best female protagonist directors of all time. Antonioni say "hello" to Bergman for us!

I can't believe two of the greatest director's have died in the same week, This is a very sad week for the movie industry.

R.I.P. Antonioni & Bergman , Thanks for bringing some brilliance to the big screen.

While certainly not a huge shock, considering his age, another master of cinema has passed away. It's a little weird that both Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni would both die on the very same day, but there you have it. My favorite Antonioni film is quite possibly The Passenger with Jack Nicholson. Not only is it beautifully shot, but it's just a great film from start to finish. It has one of my favorite quotes of all time, and the last seven minutes or so are fantastic.

Dammit. Two of the greatest directors of the past century gone in 1 day.

What is this? Some kind of disease or pilgrimage site?

A real visionary. All time favorites of mine include L'Avventura, Blow Up, Red Desert, The Passenger and even Zabriskie Point (which I'm awaiting to see on a R1 DVD).

I've loved BlowUp ever since I saw it in a film class in college - what a strange, mesmerizing movie. And I finally saw The Passenger for the first time a few months back and thought it was nearly as great. What a terrible week for film fans.

Jesus! I'm not a superstitious person, but what were the odds of two of the greatest directors dying on the same day? Just dumbfounded about the double sad news.

L'Avventura was one of those movies that opened me up to foreign films.

R.I.P.

RIP

I was just talking to friends yesterday how he and Godard were the last 2 greats left. Two of my favorite directors who I felt made quality films throughout their entire careers now gone. Shame.
