(Professione: reporter, Michelangelo Antonioni, Italy/Spain/France 1975, 126 min.)
You Don’t Know Jack: Jack Nicholson in ’70s Master filmmaker Antonioni charts the wavering political commitments of Nicholson, a TV reporter who impulsively assumes the identity of a leftist gunrunner. Jumping from a coarse Sahara guerilla war to the tourist-unfriendly corners of Barcelona and London, Nicholson soon takes on a mysterious companion (Maria Schneider at her best). Unavailable for 30 years, but nevertheless a formidable influence on Wim Wenders and countless Euro-thrillers.
