They usually say that celebrities seem to go in threes, Mike Reid, Ingmar Bergman and now Antonioni.

There was that German guy last week - him that starred in FUNNY GAMES and last year's LIVE OF OTHERS too.

Antonioni and Bergman were quite old, I guess. Still, Antonioni made some really interesting films - I'm a big fan of BLOW UP and THE PASSENGER - they brilliant, thought-provoking films. RIP.

But Antonioni never came up with such wonderful catchphrases as "Rickay! Rickay!", "Runnnnnn-arrrround!" or "Terrrriffffic!", did he?
