Two Filmmakers on One Day

Two pillars of European filmmaking, whose movies I got introduced thorugh my late mother, died this week: Michelangelo Antonioni and Ingmar Bergman. And the same day, too. Here is a good essay on their works, their legacy and their importance in modern art.
While I never had the deep appreciation for them as my mother had, I think their films were the last of so called 'art cinema' I was still able to tolerate, even as a relatively serious and mature pre-teen. Theirs and Fellini's...okay, add Pasolini to that mix, and I think I am done.

Very tyue! But I would throw Wim Winders and Kieślowski in too!

Definitely Kieslowski...and you can convince me about Winders one of these days, I am still on the fence on him. :-)
