Seeing this on the big screen in Paris was one of my favorite movie-going experiences.

The big-screen re-release was a treat. I saw The Passenger at the Spectrum Theater in Albany NY and it was a revelation. This film is another reason why the 70s were so great, and you're to be commended for recognizing it.

Never get tired of seeing this film. My favourite Nicholson peformance, and, in many ways, my fave Antonioni film. Haunting in the extreme, and I can't think of a better film to showcase what both men are all about. The DVD was a Godsend.

Thanks guys,
I initially saw this incredible film a a teenager courtesy of the cut and cloudy VHS copy. Seeing the uncut print theatrically a few years back was astounding and remains one of my favorite big screen experiences.
The DVD is a favorite as well with Jack's commentary being really special.
