Easy Rider, a sparsely written cross-country movie with a Don Quixote and Sancho Panza on extravagant motorcycles, is marred by draggy, romantic material. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Hopper, Fonda and their friends went out into America looking for a movie and found instead a small, pious statement (upper case) about our society (upper case), which is sick (upper case). It's pretty but lower case cinema.

"Easy Rider," even for those uninterested in the legacy of 1960s counterculture, punches the viewer in the gut with its hopelessness and emptiness. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Though deserving of its esteemed status on account of the cinematic revolution it spawned, the feature itself is something of a relic. But since when isn't it fascinating to reflect on the fossils of the past? Full Review

Beyond the melodrama of groovy kids vs. rednecks is an emotion that more and more of us, young and old alike, are experiencing, the overpowering sense of loss, the anguish of What went wrong? We blew it -- how? Full Review

Product Description:

This is the definitive counterculture blockbuster. The down-and-dirty directorial debut of former clean-cut teen star Dennis Hopper (Blue Velvet), Easy Rider heralded the arrival of a new voice in film, one pitched angrily against the mainstream. After the film s cross-country journey with its radical, New Wave style editing, outsider-rock soundtrack, revelatory performance by a young Jack Nicholson (Five Easy Pieces), and explosive ending the American road trip would never be the same.
