Swinging Sixties


Blow-Up (1966)

Leading Italian director, Michelangelo Antonioni, attempted to capture London during the swinging sixties in his first British film, Blow-Up.


More (1969)

I first saw this as a late night channel 4 screening many years back. Fasty forward and More is now out on Blu-ray. Does this Pink Floyd-soundtrack movie still cut the mustard?

Modesty Blaise

Modesty Blaise (1966)

Yeah…..I know….plenty of these around back in the day…and in retrospect it’s sometimes hard to separate spoof from serious when it comes to 60’s espionage flicks….far easier to sort out the good from the bad, the wheat from the chaff.
