Zabriskie Point (1970)

Zabriskie Point (1970, USA) C-110m. SCOPE *** D: Michelangelo Antonioni. Starring Mark Frechette, Daria Halprin, Paul Fix, G.D. Spradlin, Rod Taylor, Harrison Ford. Artistically outstanding cult film about the counter-culture and protesting students in the U.S.A., focusing on an afternoon in the life of Frechette and Halprin, who meet, make love and rebel. Antonioni's striking direction makes this time capsule (originally a treatise on and criticism of the Western culture) a joy to watch. Memorable finale, brilliant cinematography by Alfio Cantini. Antonioni also edited the picture sans credit. Music by Pink Floyd. Produced by Carlo Ponti.
