This weeks film stars Jack Nicholson:

The Passenger
Professione: reporter, Michelangelo Antonioni, Itay/France/Spain, 1975. 126mins, 35mm. M low level offensive language

An ostentatiously with-it and characteristically laconic thriller, an alienated male protagonist stumbles into some sort of social responsibility. Here, a celebrity tele-journalist (Nicholson) reporting on a North African liberation movement ventures to the heart of enigmatic otherness. The terrain mirrors his own emptiness. But then, as in Casablanca, fate takes a hand.

A brilliant hybrid of Hollywood thriller and existential mystery.

"One of the strongest films in Antonioni's enduring study of identity and apartness." – Don DeLillo
