The Passenger

Saturday, December 15 - Tuesday, December 18, 2012

35mm print “A masterpiece, one of Michelangelo Antonioni’s finest works. Jack Nicholson and Maria Schneider star as a journalist who trades one identity for another and the woman who becomes his accomplice (and ultimately the moral center of his adopted world). Less a thriller (though the mood of mystery is pervasive) than a meditation on the problems of knowledge, action for its own sake, and the relationship of the artist to the work he brings into being. Next to this film, Blowup seems a facile, though necessary, preliminary. By all means go.” – Chicago Reader
