La Notte

La Notte ★★★★½

They're not mutually exclusive, but an integral differentiation between an empty mood piece and a great movie about emptiness is how great it looks, ironically or not. Featuring stunning high-contrast b&w cinematography and attractive stars certainly can't hurt, yet it's all about the way the extraordinary compositions evoke the kind of glamorous muted despair Antonioni is getting at.
