Blow-Up (1966)

When you look up 'mod films' online the first one to always come up is Blow-Up, the 1966 film directed by Michelangelo Antonioni and starring David Hemmings, Vanessa Redgrave, & Sarah Miles. Models Jane Birkin and Peggy Moffitt among others also make an appearance. This film is a art-house classic and if you haven't seen it you must do so right this second. It has wonderful 60s fashion and murder mystery (two things that I love). It's a bleak but stylish look through the lens of a bored mod voyeur who accidentally photographs a murder while shooting pictures of a mysterious girl in a quiet park in London. xoxo
