Easy Rider

Dennis Hopper's Cannes- and Oscar-nominated counter-culture classic, following Wyatt (Peter Fonda) and Billy (Hopper) as they motorcycle across the great American wilderness to a soundtrack of rock and rebellion. Co-stars Jack Nicholson. "They're not scared of you. They're scared of what you represent... What you represent to them is freedom."

This landmark feature of American cinema is equally famed for Hopper's raucous set which included offscreen drugs, real drugs used as on-screen drugs, ad-libbed performances, physical confrontations, and more drugs.

None of the forced violence, lawlessness, rapist, gratuitous speed aspects of the motorbike clan in this perceptive film.

A simplistic amalgam of travelogue and the zoom lens.

It plays today more as a period piece than as living cinema, but it captures so surely the tone and look of that moment in time.

This is a glorious widescreen vision of a hot and bothered America, at once beautiful and lost. Yes, it has dated, but its pessimistic last gasp ("We blew it...") still carries a prescient sting.
