Yeah I thought the compositions were pretty interesting but I didn't care for the songs very much, and going in I thought I would feel the opposite. There are far better musicals for me, even from that decade of decline.

1. Once Upon a Time in the West (Leone, 68)
2. The Manchurian Candidate (Frankenheimer, 62)
3. The Trial (Welles, 62)
4. Daisies (Chytilova, 66)
5. Jules and Jim (Truffaut, 62)
6. The Naked Kiss (Fuller, 64)
7. Red Beard (Kurosawa, 65)
8. Army of Shadows (Melville, 69)
9. Les Biches (Chabrol, 67)
10. The Young Girls of Rochefort (Demy, 67)

The toughest decade so far for me. I can't believe I had to leave off Resnais, Fellini, Buñuel, and Antonioni. Sorry Italy, but the French owned this decade.

Truffaut over Antonioni is an unforgivable offense.

On the whole, I agree. But I just prefer Jules and Jim to any of Antonioni's single films, and it's certainly one of Truffaut's more visually dynamic works.

Keep in mind, I still haven't watched my Blu-Ray of Red Desert; it was creeping around my Top 10 and is my favorite of his but didn't quite make it.

I'm giving him a hard time, as per usual. I do like Jules and Jim though. But it's the only Truffaut I really respond to, whereas I do genuinely believe Antonioni might be the most artistically vital filmmaker to really come to prominence that decade.

Also, anyone, and I mean ANYONE who hasn't seen Daisies needs to correct that immediately. One of the most inventive films I've ever seen, and one can see the immense effect it had on the French New Wave.

The Region 2 disc from Second Run is great, but there is a Region 1 disc available.

I'm not going to necessarily take issue with that, but I'd have a pretty hard time deciding between him and Resnais. I'm not sure I could find three Antonioni films that together would top Marienbad, Hiroshima, and Muriel.

Antonioni's filmography is certainly deeper, though.

Marienbad and Muriel don't quite stack up to a lot of Antonioni's work personally, and certainly not to Hiroshima, which is in my all-time top 5. But Just take Il Grido, L'aaventura, La Notte, L' Eclisse and Red Desert... yeah. All masterworks in a new cinematic language for the time. Hard to find a run like that in most director's resumes.

Of all the "great directors", I think Antonioni might be the only one I haven't seen a single film of.
