Final Scene Of Antonioni’s Zabriskie Point = Dali In Motion

Monday, May 24th, 2010

While I don’t think Antonioni’s Zabriskie Point is quite the film accomplishment of Blow Up or Red Desert, I still think it’s a heck of an important movie and probably (along with The Passenger) much more accessible to American audiences than his earlier works. I can go on and on about how much I love Antonioni’s films…however, that’s not the point of my post.

First, for reference, here is the last 9 minutes of Zabriskie Point. About the 4:00 mark is when the final “action” begins (the house blowing up…sorry if I ruined it for you) and at 5:20 the final “scene” begins.

My YouTube FUBAR

So, I admit I don’t use YouTube that much. However, when it added social features that allowed me to connect via YouTube to my Twitter & Facebook Friends with one click of a button, I did that. I fully admit to being a bit of a friending whore in many of the more popular networks (e.g. I have several hundred Foursquare connections and have yet to use the service)…however, I’ve found that it’s so hard to know in advance where and how to make the most meaningful connections…so when it’s so easy to connect with hundreds via one click, I go and push the button.

People don’t use the word “serial” much anymore unless they are talking about computer ports. However, once upon a time “serial” stories ruled both in publishing and in cinema. I’m surprised the word isn’t used in connection with blogging (at least I don’t think it is) because a blog can be described as an ongoing, long-running serial of the author’s thoughts.
