Vanessa Redgrave and David Hemmings in Blow-Up


Blow-Up
(1966)

It's hard to pick a favorite Michelangelo Antonioni movie. In his cult oeuvre, "Zabriskie Point," you get explosions and beautiful people fornicating in the desert. But Blow-Up is probably the director's masterpiece. Starring the sultry Vanessa Redgrave, it has a distinctly '60s sexiness. It's visual porn for the sapio-sexual who gets off on the intellect or art. Inspired by the life of a real Swinging Sixties photographer, its plot centers around a photog who thinks he accidentally captured a murder on film. Blow-Up's explicit scenes were illegal at the film's release, but its box office success led to a revision of Hollywood's rating system!

Genre: Drama, Thriller
Directed by: Michelangelo Antonioni

Starring: Vanessa Redgrave, David Hemmings
