An Image 16/09/10

The lasting final image to Antonioni's surreal metaphysical L'eclisse, which features one of the most enigmatic endings in cinematic history. A kind of pseudo trip to the beyond and the closest Antonioni has come to representing Science Fiction in his work- even though in essence this a simple love story about cocky boy meets vulnerable gal. The last few moments of the film delve upon existence and a selected branch of images that evoke a kind of spooky, dreary mood that concludes with a lunar eclipse. What does it all mean? I'm not quite sure and Antonioni might be a bit full of himself but it's all hypnotic & just sheer fun to figure out.
