Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Passenger

Not the why, but the what, when and, especially, the who, is this mesmerically transcendental study in identity and alienation. Between script and direction this stripped-out thriller redacts the expected genre trigger points into something closer to an existential meditation on the insignificance of being. Antonioni characteristically modulates with a beautifully spare use of time, space and sound. Superb.
