Of all the mysteries of cinema I wonder about, the long sleeve polka dotted top Monica Vitti wears is one of the greater ones. Where did it come from? How did Michelangelo Antonioni react to seeing it? Was it pre-chosen? Did cinematographer Aldo Scavarda do anything differently to accommodate it as it just violently blares and dance like a mirage like Las Vegas blur across the silver screen. Whatever the origin it’s a daring choice that pays off and makes this film even more unique and special as a result.
