From a new book I have just ordered, yet another BLOW-UP book - I already have about half a dozen (as per Antonioni label), this one is ANTONIONI'S BLOW-UP by Philippe Garner and David Alan Mellor. I can't wait ... good that there are still things to say about Antonioni's masterwork. I for one can't get enough of Hemmings in the park and those studio scenes and the London I knew then - I lived near the restaurant in Chelsea too. That was me on the screen when I was 21, its how we looked and dressed. Key '60s stuff then.
I have a new clutch of '60s movies to (re)watch too: KING RAT, MORGAN, ISADORA, THE MAGIC CHRISTIAN, BEDAZZLED, THE MUSIC LOVERS ... more on those in due course.
