In this episode, which is a part of my series, Italian Classic Movies That You Need To Know, we review Red Desert (Il Deserto Rosso), which was released in 1964. It was directed by Michelangelo Antonioni and starred Monica Vitti and Richard Harris. This film is often described as the emotional breakdown of a woman because of the environment she lives in. However, we see it more as an exploration of mental health struggles, based on Monica Vitti’s character’s car accident and other factors. My guest is Actress/Writer Kathy Rupcic.
