Metacritic Score

  • 100

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Whether there was a murder isn't the point. The film is about a character mired in ennui and distaste, who is roused by his photographs into something approaching passion.

  • 100

    Slant Magazine Ed Gonzalez

    Blowup daringly suggests that an image without politics isn't an image at all.

  • 100

    Slant Magazine Chuck Bowen

    Blow-Up is moving and influential for the chasms it understands to exist between people, and for its perception of art as unable to bridge those divides.
