Corsair Classic

"And yet another thing may be said of both directors, as far as we're concerned: While Hollywood was churning out Beach Blanket Bingo, a generation of New Yorkers flocked to the theaters to see foreign film, because it was the only stuff worth watching. They kept watching, and Antonioni and Bergman were worshiped here as artists. One wonders if contemporary American cinema could ever have shaken off the sand and become important again if it weren't for them. Requiescant in pace, Antonioni and Bergman." (Observer)
