The Passenger 1975
The Passenger stars Jack Nicholson as David Locke, a documentary filmmaker covering a war between rebels and a tyrannical government somewhere in Africa. He’s struggling to find what he wants though and has just about given up, when he finds himself in an unusual situation. He heads to the room of Robertson (Charles Mulvehill), a businessman he’d befriended in his hotel, only to find him dead. As he stares at the corpse, he realises the man bares a striking resemblance to himself and sees this is a once in a lifetime chance to shed his dissatisfying existence and seek a new life as the seemingly happy and successful Robertson. He quickly swaps pictures between their passports, drags the body into his room and convinces the hotel staff and local police that the man found dead is David Locke, not Robertson.
At first Locke finds this new identity liberating, but his past and Robertson’s come back to haunt him. The latter is particularly problematic, as it turns out Robertson wasn’t the sort of clean cut businessman he seemed on the surface...
