CDA: Monica Vitti

My brother Howard alerted me to the death of Monica Vitti, who the NY Times called the "Queen of Italian Cinema." She was 90 years old. Here's a scene from her best-known film, Antonioni's *L'Avventura.* There are no subtitles in this clip but she's so expressive, do we really need to know what she's saying? The ending of this scene is such a powerful and disturbing illustration of The Male Gaze.
