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.

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.

I lived through (and took part in) the student activism and "alternative culture" of the 1960s and the dawn of the 1970s as a student myself (at the University of Massachusetts at Boston, in the same urban centre where actor Mark Frechette carried out his activism during that decade, and at the all-too-explosively alive Kent State University). I remember how we despised the acrid and shallow materialism of the prevailing culture of the U. S. of A. and how we longed to see it all blow up in the faces of that nation''s besotted leaders and of the easily deluded citzenry that kept on (and continues) voting them into office. That has happened, at last, with the implosion of the U.S. economy in the first decade of the 21st Century. It is a pity that this collapse, that makes an arrogant nation seethe with poverty and frustration thus doomed soon to powerlessness, did not occur sooner. Such timing would have limited the toll of victims of American power and greed to between the time of the film, 1970, and that of an earlier financial and militarily agonised doom.

Daria, seething with resentment for Mark's needless death (although his carelessness certainly brought it upon him), fantasises that the very symbol of the bourgeois fatuity of American callousness and vulgarity, i.e., the garishly opulent corporate facility (and/or mansion) set high in the desert surface, with joltingly sudden violent force explodes to smithereens (with visions of explosions of urban artificialty of many additional sorts added to this). That creates a breathtaking vision of justice come to a besotted and unworthy American culture of excess and greed.

I like the natural touch of the two leading actors using their real first names for their roles.

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 ›
