"I am not a theoretician of the cinema. If you ask me what directing is, the
first answer that comes into my head is: I don't know. The second: All my
opinions on the subject are in my films."

- Michelangelo Antonioni

It's extraordinary that Bergman and Antonioni, two giants of twentieth-century cinema, died on the same day!

Thanks for a nice tribute post, Holden!

Holden's link is actually to the obit in the Times of London (not that there's anything wrong with that!) The New York Times obituary is here.

For those who wish Italian-language coverage ...
