Professione: reporter

Michelangelo Antonioni / FR, IT, US, ES, 1975 / 119 min.

Antonioni points his peerlessly operated camera at reporter David Locke (Jack Nicholson), who is investigating a guerrilla movement. Then this cynical, dyed-in-the-wool, bored journalist takes on the identity of a guest who dies in his hotel, and starts a new life.

Michelangelo Antonioni made three feature films outside of Italy: Blow-up (1965), Zabriskie Point (1970) and Professione: reporter – featuring an ice-cool Jack Nicholson in the lead role of veteran TV reporter David Locke. He roams Europe, pursued by secret agents, arms dealers and a mysterious female architecture student (Maria Schneider); his odyssey ends in a hotel near Almeria, Spain.
