It is a commonplace that you can't make movies which combine intense broad-brush future-dystopian visionary panache and fidelity to every-day intimate human congress. Imagine 2001 with dialogue by Raymond Carver or a JG Ballard story directed by Robert Altman. Hang on it sometimes happens, if you squint at one or the other of these pre-requisites. What about Alphaville, Stalker-maybe, Satantango, Rivette's Out 1,Zia Zhang-Ke's The World and best of all maybe Glen and Randa.This film is ultimately a pristine mournful and lightly humourous epitaph for utopian 60s dreaming. A companion piece to Zabriskie Point perhaps.
