When Antonioni’s Blow-Up came out in 1966, it did well on the arthouse circuit, but proved enigmatic to many. Was it a murder mystery? A thriller? An existential fable of the mod generation? An auteurist masterpiece by an Italian director venturing into English-language film for the first time? On the second episode of The Rear Window Podcast, David Kleiler, Jean-Paul Ouellette and Dima Ballin discuss Blow-Up’s endless artistry and its kaleidoscope of cinematic techniques; all of which are that much easier to appreciate on Criterion’s superlative new blu-ray release.
