"One of the defining works of modernist cinema … Antonioni created, as the Cannes jury put it in 1960, a new language of cinema, one that perfectly expressed a modern alienation that's as enduring as the film." - Zachary Wigon, The Village Voice

"Game-changing… The film's effect was epochal, and all it took was an artist with the courage to wander." - Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York

"DON'T MISS. Michelangelo Antonioni’s L’avventura is a film you have a lifelong relationship with … If you’ve already seen the film, you will most likely see it again at some point, and if you’ve never seen it, you will probably see it several times in your lifetime once you do." - Beth Hanna, Indiewire

"A cinematic landmark … Antonioni captured a new bourgeois society that shifted from physical to intellectual creation, from matter to abstraction, from things to images, and the crisis of personal identity and self-recognition that resulted." - Richard Brody, The New Yorker

"A spiritual journey every cinephile must take at least once." - Carman Tse, LAist

"Alienation has never been more gorgeously indulged than in Michelangelo Antonioni's widescreen spectacular … This provocative voyage into the void brought the filmmaker’s style to maturity and reinvented movies in the process." - J. Hoberman, The New York Review of Books

"Marked Antonioni’s leap into something new and unprecedented … Should be an essential date in the calendar, marked in red with bold underlines and exclamation points. Simply put, no real diet of cinema can exclude L’avventura, and particularly L’avventura on 35mm." - Robert Koehler, arts·meme

"One of the most dispassionately, devastatingly elegant films of all time … L’avventura holds its own amongst the best of its century as well as this one." - Kelly Leow, MovieMaker
