Taking photographs of a couple making love proves deadly when the photographer enlarges the image and discovers murder. The film and pictures are stolen from his studio and the body vanishes. In this elegant balance of deciet and trickery, the photographer must question the reality of what he has actually seen.
This 1966 masterpiece by Michelangelo Antonioni (The Passenger) is set in the heady atmosphere of Swinging London, and stars David Hemmings as an unsmiling fashion photographer hooked on ephemeral meaning attached to anything: art, sex, work, relationships, drugs, events. When a real mystery falls into his lap, he probes the evidence for some reliable truth, but finds it hard to reckon with. Vanessa Redgrave plays an enigmatic woman whose desperation to cover something up only seems like one more phenomenon in Hemmings's disinterested purview. This is one of the key films of the decade, and still an unsettling and lasting experience. --Tom Keogh

While this movie has a few interesting scenes, particularly those with a strong 60s London vibe, overall I found it to be slow-moving, pretentious, and overrated. Read morePublished 4 months ago by DJ
This film should, of course, get 5 stars...but be patient and hope that Criterion will eventually release a Restored Edition with a worthwhile Commentary Track. Read morePublished 5 months ago by RANDEL
