Michelangelo Antonioni’s The Passenger is a classic of 1970s existentialist cinema, beloved so much by its star Nicholson that he bought the circulation rights shortly after its release. Unhappy Anglo-American journalist David Locke assumes the identity of a dead businessman while producing a documentary in Chad, unaware of the implications not only for himself but also for the world around him. Surreal, beautiful and devastating in its conclusion, The Passenger is a film that refuses to be forgotten.
