John Alcott, Kubrick's cinematographer for Barry Lyndon and a few of his other films shot this, and there are very obvious lineages between some of the images here and 'Full Metal Jacket', although Alcott passed away a year that film was shot.

But this film is neither a biopic, nor is it a 'slice of life' film that shows a few days or weeks in the life of someone, as films such as 'Blonde', 'Spencer' or 'Jackie' do so well.

Antonioni's cinema is so ethereal and dreamy, which I love, but this film slightly went over my head.

The audience is held to ransom at the end - as there is a character choice that is so important to the film.
