It's strange how images become iconic. The final image here of David Hemmings playing the mod photographer in the 1966 classic Blow Up has been recognizable to me for years, but I had no idea for the longest time what it was from. It was only last week when a friend recommended I watch it after he saw me carrying around an old nikon on my shoulder, that I found out where that image was from.
I can't believe it has taken so long for me to see this film. Sparse, intriguing, eclectic, this is a film full of contradictions, cleverly composed dialogue, beautiful panning shots and mesmerizing acting from Hemmings.
