PSYCHEDELIC SCENE: PINK FLOYD - ANTONIONI, ZABRISKIE POINT
Michelangelo Antonioni
Here, is a movie-scene that impressed me most when I saw it: Zabrieskie Point, directed by Michelangelo Antonioni.
Described the life of two boys during the years of protest, (1970) a little boring for me, but there are some scenes that remained in my mind forever, like this: the final scene, where a house explodes, with a background amazing music: Pink Floyd.
This scene, remains in the history of cinema, both as a cinematic technique, editing, and as a symbol of a decadent society, what is happening right now, even more slowly, than Michelangelo Antonioni has shown us.
The film was a flop: as well as critical, for cash, also cost a lot, but the mix of images and music remains today a cornerstone of world cinema.
The Pink Floyd Musical theme is: "Come In Number 51, Your Time Is Up" (a version of "Careful With That Axe, Eugene"). Daria Halprin playing the part of "Daria.
