Description:Thomas is a rich fashion photographer who doesn't care much about anything and mistreats the women he photographs. While wandering about in search of photos one day, he shoots a couple making out in a park. The woman (Vanessa Redgrave) sees him and pursues him, trying to get him to give up the film. He gives her different roll. When he develops the photos, he notices that the man in the park is laying on the ground and there appears to be a man with a gun in the bushes. He goes to the park and finds the dead man. But by the time he gets back to the lab, his place has been robbed and all the photos are gone except for one extreme blow-up in which he can't really tell what happened. He goes back to the park, but the body is gone. The movie ends without him or us knowing what, if anything, happened.

Review - Blowup

Very 1960s hip English in style and color, with some crude bits thrown in for no reason. The concept was pretty cool, but the ending was unmemorable.
