The Passenger


A disgusted journalist (Jack Nicholson) attempts to renew himself by adopting a dead man's identity and traveling through Spain and North Africa with a young woman (Maria Schneider), but the man's death, tied up as it was in political intrigue, might just have been the wrong kicking-off place for a new life. Michelangelo Antonioni goes a little too much the scenic route with Antoni Gaudi's architecture in Barcelona (and we hope that all those strange twists and melts of Gaudi's weren't intended to mirror Nicholson's mind), but he compensates with a closing shot that is one of the more amazing tracks and pans in cinema (he claims it was influence by Michael Snow's Wavelength) (1975). This is a new 35mm print of the European version, containing seven minutes of footage previously unseen in the United States.
