This job is hard… there aren’t many jokes that can be made out of Sansho the Bailiff or La Strada. Like, how do you even make fun of Carl Theodor Dreyer

L’Avventura | Michelangelo Antonioni | 1960
"Antonioni’s film is an intellectual adventure or it is nothing. The plot, such as it is, will infuriate audiences who still demand plotted cinema and potted climaxes. A group of bored Italian socialites disembark from their yacht on a deserted island. After wandering about a while, they discover that one of their number, a perverse girl named Anna, is missing. Up to that time, Anna (Lea Massari) had been the protagonist. Not only does she never reappear; the mystery of her disappearance is never solved."
- Andrew Sarris, writing in The Village Voice, 1961
