Product description Blow-Up (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray] Review In
1966, Michelangelo Antonioni (L’avventura) transplanted his existentialist
ennui to the streets of swinging London for this international sensation, the
Italian filmmaker’s English-language debut. A countercultural masterpiece
about the act of seeing and the art of image making, Blow-Up takes the form of
a psychological mystery, starring David Hemmings (Deep Red) as a fashion
photographer who unknowingly captures a death on film after following two
lovers in a park. Antonioni’s meticulous aesthetic control and intoxicating
color palette breathe life into every frame, and the jazzy sounds of Herbie
Hancock, a beautifully evasive performance by Vanessa Redgrave (Howards End),
and a cameo by the Yardbirds make the film a transporting time capsule from a
bygone era. Blow‑Up is a seductive immersion into creative passion, and a
brilliant film by one of cinema’s greatest artists. BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION
