Italian director, famous for "Blow-up," dies at 94

Another film great has passed away. Michelangelo Antonioni, one of Italy's most famed modernist film directors, died on Monday at his home in Rome. "Mr. Antonioni is probably best known for "Blowup," a 1966 drama set in swinging London about a fashion photographer who comes to believe that a picture he took of two lovers in a public park also shows, obscured in the background, evidence of a murder."
