Mike Nichols' Double Feature

My partner wisely wants to catch up on some recent releases, so it's my hope to have something to say about Carnal Knowledge and Closer shortly. Meanwhile, I'll continue to ruminate on which director to cover next - Bresson, Kurosawa (as once promised), Antonioni, Visconti, Billy Wilder, or Bogdanovich (that's right.)

Comments welcome as always. Thanks to Alfred, I may simply direct emails his way reasoning why Antonioni in so many ways affected the way audiences view mis-en-scene like no other director, using landscape as a prop and a character, and why those things make him one of the finest and most influential directors of modern film. He did for desert landscapes what Herzog's done for the rainforest!
