BLOW-UP
1966, Warner Bros., 111 min, Italy, UK, Dir: Michelangelo Antonioni

In-demand fashion photographer David Hemmings shags half the models in London - before running into enigmatic beauty Vanessa Redgrave, who only wants a certain roll of film from him. A riddle within a riddle, Antonioni’s most famous film has often been imitated (De Palma’s BLOW OUT, Greenaway’s THE DRAUGHTSMAN’S CONTRACT). Look for a young Jane Birkin in one of her first film appearances - and for The Yardbirds mimicking The Who’s penchant for destruction in the film’s frenzied nightclub scene!
