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.
