Earlier Antonioni films have often seemed studied, but not this one. Its details are easy and apropos.
August 12, 2006
What in different hands would have been a bombastic psychological thriller becomes a stark study of existential alienation.
June 24, 2006
A classic of a difficult and alienating kind, but one that really does shimmer in the mind like a remembered dream.

Thanks to Luciano Tovoli's magnificent cinematography of the African desert and the arid Spanish countryside, we gain a potent sense of Locke's internal emptiness.

The best of Antonioni's three English-language pictures.

The Passenger is a marvel of quiet insight in many ways, not least of which is the chance to view Jack Nicholson before he became JACK NICHOLSON.

This is one of the most insufferable, pretentious, and boring movies I've seen in my life. [Full Review in Spanish]

It has all the elements of an action movie but remains stubbornly, intractably static. Antonioni is more interested in emptiness, the vast, barren landscapes an externalization of the void inside our protagonist.

The Passenger is almost a masterpiece. Almost? That's because the plot, a thrillerish tangle about swapped identity in a menacing foreign country, begs for the pen of Patricia Highsmith.

As a diagnosis of purposelessness the film is the most intelligent, engaging kind of misery.

I can't say that I liked The Passenger at first-I think I'm coming to that-but I'm impressed, to say the very least.

The film's wonderfully meandering journey ends with a mesmerizing feat of visual gymnastics in which the camera itself seems to leave the body of the film then turn around to have a look.

Boasting a great performance from Nicholson, Antonioni's third English-speaking film, arguably his last great work.

A bleak and moving drama with reflective performance from Jack Nicolson

What is more interesting than the 'whys' and 'hows' of the plot however, are the 'where' and 'when.'
August 23, 2006
Sure, it's obstinately slow, but what an eye this man has. Every frame is fascinating.

Visually inventive film.
