L'Eclisse/The Passenger

Two clips from Michelangelo Antonioni's (1912-2007) works. The first is a mash-up between the opening and ending sequences of L'Eclisse (1962). The second, the well-known tracking shot from The Passenger (1974).

This was one of the best newspaper corrections of all time from earlier this year (NYT, Jan. 15, 2008):


Because of an editing error, an article in Business Day on Monday about a federal tax-evasion case against the actor Wesley Snipes misstated the title of one of his movies. It was Passenger 57, not The Passenger.
