    The Passenger

    ★★★½

    First foray into Antonioni's filmography !

    Liked the almost "free-form" narrative structure. It felt ethereal, but real at the same time, and it was almost relaxing to follow. If you're expecting a classic mystery movie when starting this you're probably going to end confused and disappointed. The important here is the mood and theme.

    Speaking of the theme, it clicked in my mind like halfway through the movie, which made everything much more interesting to follow. Plus, you understand the…

    The best film noir I've seen so far. May even give this a 5/5 if the film continues to grow on me in the coming hours and days.

    It's a satire of Hollywood, of course, but it's also a film about a couple broken people desperately clinging on to the past, and the man that joins this world for money. Loved the way Gloria Swanson acts in this. Her characters cannot help but exaggerate her expressions and use her stare…
