the passenger by antonioni


Recommended Posts

there is no region 1 or 2 dvd of this film, but there is a decent japanese (region 4?) dvd out there, out of print i think. it would definately have the european name of the film "profession : reporter". can anyone help me find a copy?

 

by the way for any of you who have missed seeing this film it is unbelievable.

The passenger is on my top 10 list! It is one of the most intellectualy stimulating films I've ever seen. My VHS copy is seriously worn out. I read a very interesting book on the way the camera was used in that film-panning away from the action, randomly picking up Locke, the final 11 minute take, etc...truely a superb film by a master.

Hey everyone,

 

A DVDr copy of "The Passenger" is available at the website:

 

superhappyfun.com

 

Films out-of-print and otherwise unavailable in the U.S. are available from this mail order service for the average price of $13.00 per DVDr. They are a reliable service -- I've bought from them in the past with no problems.

 

Hope that helps.

william arrowsmith's book on M.A. is now oop, but if you can find one (they're out there) it is essential reading for antonioni fans:
