Michelangelo Antonioni’s L’Eclisse and lack of external awareness

L’Eclisse (Eclipse) made in 1963 is the third film in Michelangelo Antonioni’s decadence trilogy. The film discusses similar themes of: alienation, love and tragedy to the trilogy’s earlier films: L’Avventura and La Notte.

I’ve covered both L’Avventura and La Notte in other blog posts.

La Notte (The Night) made in 1961 is the second, and regarded by many as the best, film in Michelangelo Antonioni’s decadence trilogy. The film discusses similar themes of: alienation, love and tragedy to the other films in the trilogy: L’Avventura and L’Ecclisse, and is notable for Gianni Di Venanzo’s stunning monochromatic cinematography.

I’ve covered both L’Avventura and L’Ecclisse in other blog posts.
