5.0 out of 5 stars Art doesn't get "outdated" June 7 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This film just like any other piece of real art is not about "political discussions among students" like one reviewer claims, it has nothing to do with crime and violence or sex revolution and hippy movement of the 60's either. Just like Crime And Punishment is not in the same league as Dirty Harry... What it is about - I am not talking about the plot - is closer to Richard Bach than Agatha Christy.

5.0 out of 5 stars 60's film that rebels violence, etc. Dec 4 1998
Format:VHS Tape
Michelangelo Antonioni has made his second counter-culture classic (the other being "Blowup") that deals graphically with 60's free love, rebellion, take-over, violence, and thought-provoking ideas. I am not shy to say that this is my favorite movie and Daria Halprin delivers a controversial performance noting her little experience in the world of film. The pic may look somewhat like a documentary and for this reason, it may be described as surreal for the genre of social drama. This film is provided with a precocious atmosphere, a lovingly "made" relationship between Mark Frechette and Halprin. The hippy days are accordingly portrayed in this classic 1960's drama of social comment that has a climax that will give an affect on your eyes as well as your ear-drum as Daria's post-apocolyptic vision of an exploding building in Arizona. The scenes in Death Valley where Halprin and Frechette exchange thoughts is the most poignant moment of Antonioni's masterpiece. What he has done to "Zabriskie Point" can only be described as surreal beauty.

2.0 out of 5 stars ZABRISKIE POINTless...... Feb. 21 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Following acclaim that deluged his artsy existential thriller BLOW-UP, avante-garde director Antonioni suffers a near-terminal case of self-indulgent hubris in this disasterous POX AMERICANA fable.ZABRISKIE POINT views like a pretentious Home Movie. His cinematic rambling about American political/moral decadence is one-dimensional and executed with naivete belying thematic gravitas rendering the proceedings alternately trite and silly.
EXAMPLEs:The opening sequence(RAP SESSSION 101:complete with Angela Davis clone getting-down with bourgeois,honkey-pseudo rads rallying-up to"OFF" the University)is laughable but NOT funny. Like his Hippy Groucho Marxists,Antonioni is a man on a MISSION (as long as it doesn't interfere with weekend partying). The scene where "heroic" student rebels are jailed by fascist pig police has all the menace of an Elementary School Detention Hall.The gratuitous "offing" of one of the Pigs is so contrived "the big escape"into PRIMEVAL ANARCHY chould have been accompanied by the 3 Stooges Anthem rather than Pink Floyd head-tripping psychedelics.The "legendary"AMERICAN BLOW-UP ending is what one might expect a FILM STUDENT to resort to when backed into a corner(a picturesque,evocative desert vista)and doesn't know how to get-out. Mark Frechette and Daria Halprin are perfect Poster Boy/Girl Flower Power people. They're too pretty and too dumb(ZP's dialogue "listens" like Soundmen's microphone placement opx) but they "orgy" well in the Sand Dunes.As for Rod Taylor,he probably wishes he could(George)pal-up again with the original Morlocks(Antonioni's oligarchial Housing Developers are ahead of their TIME.Here Michelangelo is Right-On!)and TIME MACHINE the heck-out of the Arizona Twight-zone where this epic is mounted.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the finest movies ever made June 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A great film that focuses on and exposes many things about what is wrong with amerikkka, especially the oppression of women. The final climatic scene is pure wish fulfillment as Daria through pure force of will does with her minds what all of humanity wishes to do to this rotten system. Great music too. Buy it, watch it, and wait for the day that it will be triumphantly broadcast 24 hours a day in celebration!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Flawed Classic Feb. 22 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Poor Antonioni! People that took him and the film apart in 1970 -- and now -- seem to forget Antonioni was never a master of plot or performance, but texture and color. Z\"Zabriskie Point" stands up better today then 1970, since the decades gives the viewer a distance. Yes, the leads are blanks and the dialogue weak, but it's an IMPRESSION of American youth in revolt. Not answers. People who claim it's "boring" are the actual boring people. There are so many fantastic and unique images that any film watcher should be able to appreciate Antonioni's vision. And imagine a big studio today giving 7 million dollars (at the time a chunk of change) to a minimalist film artist. Appreciate this folks, because now studios wouldn't dare finance this film. And that end....Wow! Oh, nice music too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok movie Aug. 13 2002
Format:VHS Tape
It's not such a bad film. I have seen better, but this film is not THAT bad. You just have to REALLY be into the whole sixties thing to enjoy the film.
The soundtrack is awesome though, worthy to check that out.

3.0 out of 5 stars More famous for the soundtrack Aug. 24 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Zabriskie Point is probably more famous for the soundtrack than it is for the movie. The main attraction of the soundtrack was three Pink Floyd songs, written before the album, Atom Heart Mother. It also contains a nice 7 minute Jerry Garcia acoustic instrumental. The soundtrack album was always a must have for any Pink Floyd/Grateful Dead fan. The odd thing is that this movie is almost devoid of music. The movie starts and ends with a Pink Floyd track, and most of the Garcia track is played during the psychodelic love scene. Other than that, there are only snippets of the songs from the soundtrack album. There are large stretches of the film where there is no music at all. You would think that a movie that was supposed to be a reflection of the times in America would need a background of music, since music was so important to the whole scene. Forget about the music....is it a good movie? Not really. It starts out good, with students discussing politics. But, the debate sounds false, like something an outsider would write. It almost reminds me of how Dragnet would portray hippies; a parents view of how young people were acting. Then the movie goes off on a tangent about the hero stealing a plane. Most of it has nothing to do with the times. There are some beautifully filmed sequences in the movie. However, alot of it is just a travelogue, with long, silent passages, or just the drone of an engine. The whole thing might have worked better if there was background music to pull it all together. The love scene is very good. And the ending is pretty spectacular (but kind of a let down after reading all the raves about it). But this a great example of how the music from Pink Floyd adds so much power to the scene. Note that this scene was featured on the Oscars telecast a couple of years ago. Read more ›

Actually you needn't to say any word about this movie, you see and you experience pure nature, pure freedom, the power of the own intention breaking through all limits. Amazing!

This has to be one of the dumbest movies I've ever seen. The plot seemed random at best, with gaping holes and many contrived scenarios. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars The Sixties are gone; this film is (regrettably) still here
I was three years old when this came out so I won't offer any opinion on whether Antonioni understood what was going on here in the Sixties. Read more
