Relying only on our subjective perceptions and personal interpretations, we are asked to find the truth for ourselves.

Blowup daringly suggests that an image without politics isn't an image at all.

Every generation has a cautionary tale like Blow-Up, but its hypocrisy is special: it peddles what it condemns. Just as tired and offensive today as it was in '66.

This is a fascinating picture, which has something real to say about the matter of personal involvement and emotional commitment in a jazzed-up, media-hooked-in world so cluttered with synthetic stimulations that natural feelings are overwhelmed.

See it for the bell bottoms and the birds, and if the existential riddle at the core of the film captures your imagination, so much the better.

Part brilliant, part disturbing and part pretentious codswallop.

An important film of the sixties that has not aged well.

eye WEEKLY

The energy of the first hour dissipates just as the mystery is supposed to be deepening. But I envy you if you're seeing it for the first time -- it's still the finest motion picture to ever conclude with mimes pretending to play tennis.

Michelangelo Antonioni's first English language film is as maddening to watch as it is absorbing.

The very last scene poses a profound and beautiful question about movies, the art of storytelling, and Life Itself.

Blow-Up (1966) is director Michelangelo Antonioni's view of the world of mod fashion, and an engaging, provocative murder mystery
