ABSTRACT. I rely on relevant literature (Chatman, 1985; Elder, 1991; Melbye, 2010; Niessen, 2012; and Fresko, 2014) to prove that Zabriskie Point integrates illustrative desertscape sequences with the intention of assessing contemporary lifestyle. Zabriskie Point’s conflicting compilation of cosmopolitan pictures and sounds generating perceptual bewilderment cumulatively designates the city as a ground of aggression. Zabriskie Point’s formal portrayal of the city as a structure of plastic gist discloses the misconceptions upon which a progressively incoherent society establishes.
