Michelangelo Antonioni’s atonal film is a confused and discordant melody of the late 1960s American counterculture. While there is admirable content (the majestic cinematography is particularly notable), it doesn’t work on many different levels, and I can see why it was a box-office failure. Still, it is an interesting artifact of the times, and film buffs should definitely give it a whirl. But in the meantime, stick to Antonioni’s earlier work.
