Perhaps inevitably, Antonioni’s American film looked at contemporary campus unrest and social division: a student suspected of shooting a cop takes flight by stealing a plane, and in the desert encounters a young woman travelling to an appointment with her wealthy boss. But the director appears less interested in politics than in the look of America: the signage, landscapes and rampant consumerism.
