Martin Scorsese wrote about the death of Antonioni at age 94. He said that the film “gave me one of the most profound shocks I've ever had at the movies. ... [It] changed my perception of cinema and the world around me and made both seem limitless. It was his images that I knew, much better than the man himself. Images that continue to haunt me, inspire me. To expand my sense of what it is to be alive in the world.”
