Fading Dream

June 26th 3:00 PM

BLOW-UP
Dir. Michelangelo Antonioni (USA: 1966), 110 mins.

BLOW-UP is a provocative film about the dilemma of a man trapped in a life-style of inaction and non-commitment. David Hemmings plays an egocentric photographer in free-swinging mid-1960's London. A series of his photographs make him think that he has witnessed a murder. The fact that he has photographed a murder does not occur to him until he studies and then blows up his negatives, uncovering details, blowing up smaller and smaller elements, and finally putting the puzzle together.
