ZABRISKIE POINT (1970)
112 minutes, USA
DIRECTOR: Michelangelo ANTONIONI
CAST: MARK FRECHETTE, DARIA HALPRIN, ROD TAYLOR.
A provocative take on California during the 60s. A student radical, Mark (Mark Frechette), gets caught up in political violence and goes on the run. He meets Daria (Daria Halprin) who is in search of meaning and significance in the beautiful but facile world of consumption-mad America. The pair undertake a shared journey through the deserts of the South-West. With snatches of music written exclusively for the film by Pink Floyd, Zabriskie Point was Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s attempt to reach out to a mass market formed by the counter-culture. Directed by Antonioni, this masterpiece blends realism with dream-like states of awareness, forming an angry, sometimes enigmatic, condemnation of America.
