1966 • Michelangelo Antonioni w/David Hemmings, Vanessa Redgrave, Sarah Miles, John Castle, Jane Birkin • Score by Herbie Hancock • 111 min • 35mm

Antonioni’s BLOW-UP paints a portrait of swinging 60s London to rival Fellini’s Rome of LA DOLCE VITA. With a remarkable score from Herbie Hancock and propulsive tunes from The Yardbirds, BLOW-UP features David Hemmings as a fashion photographer who might have witnessed a murder but only realizes it after the fact.

Staff Pick! Kim, Dave
Dave: “An all time favorite. I first saw it at the Brattle and it’s been on my top 10 list ever since, a visual and audible gem.”

Showing as an accompanying feature to our premiere of BLUE NOTE RECORDS: BEYOND THE NOTES.

“A prize ’60s artifact, Michelangelo Antonioni’s what-is-truth? meditation on Swinging London is a movie to appreciate — if not ponder.”
– J. Hoberman, Village Voice
