In the original version, the song that's playing when Daria drives away at the very end and over the closing "End" title card is a Roy Orbison song, but in the 1984 MGM/UA Home Video version it's a continuation of the Pink Floyd song. The 1991 MGM/UA Home Video version restores the Orbison song. See more »
This film could never succeed, critically or with a popular audience--a great shame.
The movie presents a view of the United States that only a foreigner could have. Sadly, foreigners can't relate to it and persons from the United States cannot believe it. The movie is, therefore, caught in limbo without an audience. Reviews of the film tend to reflect this.
I have lived away from the US for 30 years and can now pretend to be able to understand what Antonioni was wanting to achieve. My view is that he has excelled. The film is a stunning indictment of the United States and, tragically, I see no remediation in the 29 years since it was first released.
