Antonioni's Zabriskie Point Now on DVD

Is it one of The Fifty Worst Films of All Time? Or a masterpiece misunderstood?

Dennis Lim's recent review on Slate.com leans ever-so-slightly toward the latter. The movie is certainly worth 110 minutes of escape to somewhere else, somewhere long gone--or as Lim puts it, "somewhere between the apocalyptic wasteland of Joan Didion's California and the empty nowhere of Jean Baudrillard's America."

It's a perfect way to get turned on for a road trip to Death Valley and points beyond. And don't forget to download the soundtrack, with its marvelous array of rare (and rarefied) tracks from Jerry Garcia, Pink Floyd, The Youngbloods and Patti Page.
