How do you like these two Antonioni films?

Bergman rated Blow-Up and La Notte the two most (or in his words: "only"...) interesting Antonioni films.

Hmmmm...I always thought La Notte lacked the originality of L'Avventura and the impact of The Eclipse.

"L'Avventura" and "Blow Up" are truly Antonioni's seminal works, that represent him and his ideas best. Hardcore fans may want more. Of "La Notte", Pauline Kael said "we see people for whom life has lost all meaning, but we are given no insight into why. They're so damned inert about their situation that I wind up wanting to throw stones at people who live in glass houses"

Il Grido is strangely overlooked and i'm not sure if i know why. Seems that certain people see the early-60s films as the better fulfillment of whatever they believe Il Grido to actually be about. I especially like the parent/child relationship (excessively aching - which i like) and the gas station scenes. Le Amiche too, is, at least for me, often undervalued.
