2.5/4 

Low budget zeitgeist movie that perfectly sums up the spirit of late 60s america. Some of the metaphors are painfully ham-fisted and it's often unstructured and meandering, but its a fascinating window into the time in which it was made. Jack Nicholson steals the movie as a whiskey swilling lawyer and the shocking ending still packs a punch.

The title says it all. It's a pretty 'easy' going and laid back film. Yet, it paints a culturally significant portrait for the time that it was released. A free-roaming, and narrative free, road picture that defined a generation.

It's not a movie that particularly speaks to me, but I can appreciate it as a well-made surreal trip that expresses the philosophy of the 60's. There are iconic scenes in this film that represent a certain freeing trend in film history.

The "philosophy" of this movie is so stoned that it is just offensive that anyone of moderate intelligence could take it seriously. The bad trip in the cemetery was painful and sacriligious to boot! Probably the worst movie I've ever seen.

Easy Rider review

A film not to everyone's liking depending on how one views it. A basic concept of Wyatt and Billy who are two motorcycle riders on the way to Mardi Gras and meets a few estranged people along the way. Earnest and enticing performances from Hopper and Fonda, which keeps the viewer glues to the screen. Great screenplay with lines from the characters: George - "You know, this used to be a helluva good country. I can't understand what's gone wrong with it." "But they see a free individual, it's gonna scare 'em." Wyatt - "It's not every man that can live off the land, you know. You do your own thing in your own time. You should be proud." and "You know Billy, we blew it." The soundtrack was well researched and very enjoyable, direction, locations and cinematography were picturesque. Only ...

Get your motor runnin' Head out on the highway...

Get your motor runnin' Head out on the highway....... So begins the tale of Easy Rider. A movie that taught an American generation how to express themselves. It also taught a lesson later learned in Deliverence, don't fool with southern yokels who yield no brain power or tolerance. I love this movie because it is well acted. I love the soundtrack. (How could you not?) I love its filming of the American landscape. The motorcycles are classic. Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson perfectly portray the three charecters who are now heroes of epic proportion. But I mostly love the sense of freedom and spontaniety that this movie gives off. The American Dream has always been about freedom. But like George Hanson says; it's one thing to talk about being free, but something else entirely...
