Blow Up (1966) is written/directed by Michelangelo Antonioni through his view of the world of mod fashion, and an engaging, provocative murder mystery that examines the existential nature of reality interpreted through photography. It was set in mid- 60s London, a locale fairly unfamiliar to the director, although well known at the time for its trends including the Beatles, stick-thin fashion model Twiggy, and the mod styles at Carnaby Street.

This was Antonioni’s first film in English, and it quickly became one of the most important films of its decade, and it was his first international box-office success. It was also a milestone in liberalised attitudes toward film nudity and expressions of sexuality. The taut and provocative film about perception and voyeurism was a combination murder mystery, a look at the world of fashion, and one of the greatest films ever made about watching and making movies.
