Early Nicholson unheralded classic
An excellent movie, with a young Jack Nicholson in the leading role, this is a story about a reporter who switches identities with a gun runner. It is a fascinating plot with many twists and turns but most of all, the cinematography is unsurpassed. It is shot in London, Germany and Northern Africa and is a joy to watch, evoking images from Lawrence of Arabia. I knew the director, Michelangel Antonioni, from film classics such as Blow -Up and Zabriskie Point, which attracted attention from 1960’s cinema critics for interpreting the social scene of that period. The movie has minimal dialogue but is crafted scene by scene with great artistry. It is a movie that I can enjoy again quite easily.
Watch it twice
Having heard about this film for years, I finally had the opportunity to watch it on DVD last night. I only wish I’d seen it years ago so I could have spent the last 34 years telling everyone I know how brilliant it is. Yes, the concluding scene (shot) is everything that it has been cracked up to be, but what astonished me even more was how Antonioni was able to wrench such a brilliant performance from both Maria Schneider and, even more impressively, Jack Nicholson. Watching this film with our 21 year-old son, whose main Nicholson reference points have been developed only in the last 10 years or so, we had to explain that, yes, in his day, Nicholson could actually act with restraint and subtlety. But never more so than in this film.
We watched it twice in succession and even the second time around it was a remarkable experience. The other reviews on IMDb offer plenty of insightful analysis. But do watch it twice.
