Zabriskie Point (1970)
An epic portrait of late Sixties America, as seen through the portrayal of two of its children: anthropology student Daria (who's helping a property developer build a village in the Los Angeles desert) and dropout Mark (who's wanted by the authorities for allegedly killing a policeman during a student riot)...- Written by Michael Brooke <email@example.com>
In what is supposed to be an indictment of 1960's American society, two aimless young adults try to find themselves in the California desert. Mark is a college student who spends most of his time attending protest rallies. He's also taken to carrying a gun which gets him into big trouble when he is incorrectly identified as the shooter in a cop killing. To get out of town, he steals a small single-engined airplane. Daria works for a property owner planning a new development but she's headed off into the desert, looking for a quiet place to meditate. When Mark and Daria meet they have sex, travel a bit together and otherwise spend their time idly wondering about life in general.- Written by garykmcd
At the same time when the students took over their universities in the 1968 riots against the system Mark was mistaken for a cop killer so he stole a small plane flying to Death Valley. On the way he met Darla and they soon end up making love in a desert.- Written by dominikmajdak
