Blow Out (with Adam Curtis in person)

Blow Out shows just how powerfully conspiracy theories can corrode our modern sense of reality, and how they are one of the prime forces that led to the growing distrust of politicians. It is also about the strange role film and movies played in this – how the recorded image, which seems so real, can sometimes lead to madness and distrust.” –Adam Curtis

“It’s a great movie.” –Pauline Kael

Dir. Brian de Palma, 1981, 35mm, 107 min.
