Blow-Up

Antonioni’s look at love and death

The latest film in the Homage to Antonioni series at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is 1966’s Blow-Up, a film many consider a benchmark in cinema of the decade. Set in hip, cool, swinging 1960s London, Blow-Up is the story of a fast-living, jaded photographer (David Hemmings) who shoots a picture of what at the time he thinks is a pair of lovers in a park. When he takes another look at the image later, he realizes that he might, in fact, have photographed a murder. As he tries to figure it out, he gets drawn into a tangled web of lies and deception. Was it love? Or was it murder? Find out at today’s screenings.
