I guess "extraordinary casts" is one way to put it but I can think of other, less flattering, descriptions.Also, calling Mr. Language Person:Kathleen Cleaver, who’s indignation and well thought-out encouragement of white student leftism proved much more powerful than the performances by the two non-actors Antonioni had cast in the lead."who's"? Really?I'm sorry but to me "Top 10 Movies" means "Good" and ZABRISKIE POINT was one of the worst, most pretentious pieces of crap I've ever had the misfortune to pay money to sit through. And believe me, Kathleen Cleaver is no actor. Granted, the leads were awful but that doesn't make her good.Jeff
This was quite interesting (to me at least):Beausoleil was to star in Kenneth Anger's Lucifer Rising, but little was shot before Beausoleil and Anger had a falling out and the project was abandoned. Some of the footage later appeared in Invocation of My Demon Brother (and again in the resurrected Lucifer Rising film). He also appeared in a softcore porn film titled The Ramrodder (a.k.a. Savage Passion), which also featured his friend Catherine Share — who went on to become a full-fledged member of the Manson Family. This film was shot, in part, at the infamous Spahn Ranch. Beausoleil had a brief appearance as Cupid in the 1967 film Mondo Hollywood, a documentary about the social, political and cultural climate of Los Angeles featuring a wide cast of Hollywood figures, including hair stylist Jay Sebring.Jeff
He didn't even get Dusan Makavejev's home country right. The correct answer is Yugoslavia. Or these days, Serbia.
