What is it about and what do you think of the movie?
It's about college students in 1970 America rebelling, their counter-culture lifestyles, bad capitalists and evil pigs, sex and drugs, and a touch of violence, all done in artsy cinematography. It's a movie you'll either love or hate.
It's directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, an Italian who is known for the visual impact of his "cinema" productions. He described himself as a Marxist intellectual.
The lead actor and actress were newcomers to acting--this was their first movie. The lead actor died three years later in prison. He was convicted of a bank robbery, and died while lifting weights in the prison exercise room (the weight fell on his neck).
Some people say the last few "explosive" minutes of the film are the best part.
TCS and I enjoyed watching it on TV. (It was recorded and we fast-forwarded thru the sex scene--it was graphic.)
It's not a "feel good" movie, and a bit weird but we related to it because it reminded us of the society and time we experienced at that age.
If has great Death Valley scenery.
Being an older film (1970), it might not be captioned.
An example of the dialogue:
Interesting! Thank you! I will keep an eye out for this film!
I watched It while I was visiting Colorado last month.
The hype is real, its fantastic.
I also jsut finished.. literally minutes ago Better Watch Out. It's an Australian Horror-comedy. Fresh and completely bonkers.
Just finished watching Perfect Sense with Eva Green and Ewan McGregor. It was an erotic romantic thriller set against the outbreak of a virus that robs people of their senses, and in the end, everyone was deaf. I was rather touched by the film.
I started to watch "Young Frankenstein" with Gene Wilder before.
