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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Art doesn't get "outdated" June 7 2001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.

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 ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Gary Fike March 22 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I give this move 5 stars for personal reasons. If you peer ever so closely at the panoramic 'orgy in the desert' shot, you will see me groaning with "her" in the sand. While there was no actual fornicating going on within my range of vision, I can tell you the gal next to me was asking out loud for it! Damn! I miss those incredibly naive, self-indulgent days. It was, I believe, October of 1969 and I was a senior in a Las Vegas high school. I answered the casting call for extras. Miracously, my father allowed me to miss a week of school to "train" with a feely-touchy dance troupe from NY. When shooting started MGM would bus us from Vegas to the Point every morning at 5am. Most of my time on the set was spent gawking at Diana, Antonioni, and all the wild movie equipment. They even imported fine silk sand to blow around. I guess Death Valley sand was not european enough. I remember Antonioni, in full archetypical director mode, chasing Mark F. off the sound set for laughing at our feeble attempts to create "love noises" for the orgy scene. HA! The setting was surreal, the weather incredible, the catered lunch edible, and the young ladies sensuous and willing in that 60's way. You know how you sometimes fantasize about going back to a time in your life that was almost perfect? Well, this is one of those times for me.
Oh, I read the Time Magazine review when the movie came out and the reviewer said, "The moral of the story? Don't help a good boy go bad. Lock your airplane, take your keys." :^D

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. Read more
