Nicholson plays the character with personal flair, as penetrating as Antonioni's handling of the film. (Review of Original Release) Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
In casting Jack Nicholson as the jaded Anglo-American journalist who abandons his previous life during a trip to Africa and adopts a dangerous new identity, Antonioni was working with a more powerful and charismatic actor than he has before or since. The result is something like a glamorous thriller or a disaster film in slow motion. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
A fascinating reflection of the era when it was made; but a starker indictment still of what film culture has become. In 1975, The Passenger was a night at the movies. Full Review
G. Allen Johnson
San Francisco Chronicle
A rare chance to see a major cinematic work on the big screen. Full Review

Entertainment Weekly
The Passenger isn't finally the masterpiece some have made it out to be, but it retains a singular intrigue: It's the first, and probably the last, thriller ever made about depression. Full Review
