What is going on??

This just in: Antonioni has died, age 94. (And I swear L'Avventura wasn't on my Netflix queue...)

(Via Dizzyhead Dennis)

Update: NYT obit.

UPDATE: Dizzyhead Dennis says, "It's weird—Antonioni has sort of become more fashionable than Bergman, and now in death, he's kind of upstaging him."

Dennis's note makes me think of T. Jefferson and J. Adams both dying on July 4, and Adams supposedly (& wrongly, as T.J.'d already passed) lamenting, "Thomas Jefferson survives." I wonder if there were any similar feelings at play here, i.e. "I'm not letting that dour old Swede snag all the applause..." [croak].
