Classic’s corner: A review of Antonioni’s Blow-up
Posted by keithosaunders on September 18, 2015
I watched Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow-up the other day. What a bloated, over-rated piece of garbage. This movie is 110 minutes long and it contains roughly five minutes of action, and believe me I use the word ‘action’ loosely.
This is it: Hedonistic, misogynistic, proto-Austin Powers photog goes to the park with his camera takes a few photos of a random May-December couple. He goes home, develops pictures, stares at them a long time, blows up the photos and notices a dead body.
I’ll never get that hour and 50 minutes back.
Here’s the same film in Keitho-vision.
Dirty old man in raincoat goes to the park hoping to expose himself but while there notices a nude couple having sex. He videos the couple, goes home but on the way is side tracked by zombies and has to behead all of them with his medieval sword.
He arrives home to find his house being looted by meth heads. He takes out his 44 magnum and shoots them. Then he takes meth.
