Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: 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. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: A prize '60s artifact, Michelangelo Antonioni's what-is-truth? meditation on Swinging London is a movie to appreciate -- if not ponder. – J. Hoberman, Village Voice, Feb 4, 2013

Fresh: The natural world is arrayed against the artificial scene; conscience is deployed against convention. If you've never seen Blow-Up, see it now, if only to see what part of the world was like 40 years ago. – Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Whether there was a murder isn't the point. The film is about a character mired in ennui and distaste, who is roused by his photographs into something approaching passion. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jun 7, 2006

Antonioni on iTunes?!?!?! Did not see that coming. Way to go!!

Definitely did not search for Antonioni on iTunes expecting something to actually come up. This is a brilliant film and is the second of Antonioni's color films. Suggestive and provacative upon its' release, it gives a look at a photographers life in the 60s counterculture of London. It reminds me very much of Hitchcock's Rear Window or Coppolla's The Conversation, two other fine films. If you like this, check out other Antonioni films such as Red Desert or L'Avventura. Great stuff!

Blow up disaster

When we rented this movie it had 5 stars. I can't imagine who thought it was that special. We couldn't even make it through the whole movie. It was the most boring, non-consequential movie I can remember seeing in a very long time.


OK, maybe this movie is "art," but it's really, really boring. What I like about it is that it shows the "trippy" London of the 1960s that Mike Myers parodied in the first Austin Powers movie.
