Blow-Up

Blow-Up ★★★★★

This took two viewings. First time I wasn’t sure what to make of it and felt distant - and was pretty inattentive. After seeing so much love and appreciation I felt the need to immediately revisit - especially due to the ending being outstanding.

A hugely satisfying rewatch, it takes effort but it’s very rewarding. The themes of ennui, solipsism and obsession - and the desire for control - echo around so perfectly and so evocatively. An enigmatic wonder that I almost unfairly dismissed.
