Movies »Blow-Up

blow upNot only am I recommending this groovy movie, but I am recommending that you watch it at least two or three times over time. The first time I viewed it, I didn't quite get Blow-Up (I was young) the second time I learned to like it, but the third time I was unequivocally in love.

The music, featuring the Yardbirds and Herbie Hancock is beyond great and the fashion is to die for, especially on such beauties as Verushka, Jane Birkin, and Peggy Moffitt.

Based on a short story by Julio Cort?zar, Michelangelo Antonioni creates a quiet, deliberately paced, enigmatic pseudo thriller where a hip photographer and aimless jerk, played brilliantly by David Hemmings, tries to unravel a mystery involving a possible murder caught on his camera and a lovely mysterious lady played by Vanessa Redgrave.

Considered by many as a classic and a masterpiece, it is thought provoking, unique, and cooler than cool.
