Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

The New York Times
Dir Michelangelo Antonioni
With Jack Nicholson, Maria Schneider
When David Locke (Jack Nicholson) impulsively exchanges identities with a businessman he finds dead in a North African hotel room, he believes he’s starting anew. But passing himself off as someone else doesn’t mean he’s escaping the past…
One of the great masterpieces from director Michelangelo Antonioni, this engrossing thriller features some of his most memorable and eloquent images.
Suspense, intrigue, wit, visual beauty, ideas: this classic has them all in spades.
Available in a 2K DCP, The Passenger can be booked to screen from 4 January.
