Reviews:
"...[A] gloriously designed, shot and scored time capsule about campus unrest..." - 03/28/1997 USA Today, p.3D


"[I]t captures the American hippie movement precisely....Antonioni's formal sensibility is still groundbreaking." - 05/01/2009 Film Comment


"[I]n the ensuing decades, ZABRISKIE POINT's critical standing improved, as directors like Gus Van Sant and Bruno Dumont paid homage to the movie with their own challenging, existential films about empty souls roaming around deserts." - 05/27/2009 A.V. Club
