Zabriskie Point
US 1970
Director: Michelangelo Antonioni

Antonioni takes the anxieties of military-industrial society and atom-smashes them in Death Valley, as young lovers spend flesh on the desert. A threshold film that re-finds America as a savage sceneemotional primitives, consumerist gods, unnoticed answersZABRISKIE POINT begins by criticizing radical student politics, but quickly stops seeking fault and starts indulging Antonioni's unequaled groovy existentialism (soundtrack by Pink Floyd and Jerry Garcia). It climaxes in a poem of inner space expressed as total explosion, scattering rock 'n' roll self-disgust and a heavy mellow of bummer-power. As art, ZABRISKIE POINT feels amazing. For those who skip Burning Man, here is an environment. (112 min)
