Quote of The day: Blow Up

Blow-Up produced by a writer/director Michelangelo Antonioni.The movie is about his view of the world of mod fashion, and an engaging, provocative murder mystery that examines the existential nature of reality interpreted through photography

--Above scene was part of the erotic, frenzied picture-taking performance, Thomas (David Hemming) energetically snaps fashion photos over her skinny, writhing, supine body while pointing his phallic camera at her. Thomas is totally in command of the situation with his camera in action. He straddles her and crawls over her, bringing her to the point of orgasmic release and satisfaction while urging her to move for his still photos ("Give it to me now, come on. That's good...Now, now, yes, yes, yes!"), although it's only a mundane and typical shoot.--

The film contains a rare performance of The Yardbirds during the period when Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck were both in the band. Jeff Beck would leave a few months later.
