My thoughts are always about film, he says, and here he has written thirty-three richly suggestive pieces elaborating ideas for films as yet unproduced.Beautifully translated by William Arrowsmith, That Bowling Alley on the Tiber reveals a master of cinema in a new role--that of an accomplished and sensitive writer.Plangent, haunting and refreshingly tough-minded...[Antonioni] is asking the questions that wiry serious film maker will have to ask if the cinema is ever to prove as hospitable to ideas as it is to the great god Action.--The New York Times Book ReviewThese writings, like his films, pair luminous landscapes with ethereal tales....These are clearly working notes, and they are as interesting for their analysis of the directors methods as for their literary content.--Library JournalAbout the Author and Translator:Michelangelo Antonioni has gained an international following with such films as LAvventura, La notte, Blow-up and The Passenger.William Arrowsmith is Robert W. Woodruff Professor of Classics and Comparative Literature at Emory University. .Winner of a major Italian literary award
