This psychological drama chronicles the gradual mental breakdown of an isolated man increasingly unable to communicate with his loved ones.
A bleak and desolate film, directed by Michelangelo Antonioni with an eye to the emotive powers of the barren landscape.
If Antonioni's assuredness isn't yet in place, Il Grido remains a key transitional work, with remarkable photography, fluid camerawork, and a typically unforgettable finale ranking among its most notable virtues.
Steve Cochran gives a superb performance.
The camera's spare, stunning compositions and the tone of loss and disaffection anticipate Antonioni's later, brilliant explorations of bourgeois anomie.
The two American actors, Cochran and Blair, seem to lack any understanding of the director's methods and deliver the least satisfying performances to be found in any Antonioni film.
One of many duds from Michelangelo Antonioni.
A fairly lucid story that puts no undue strain on a viewer's imagination or intellect.
Visually brilliant drama.
The beautifully desolate cinematography is rich in its gray color palette.
