Originally released in 1968, Easy Rider is widely regarded as the original 'road movie' and, based on the cult following it developed, it was soon copied by other Hollywood studios. Written by Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda and Terry Southern (Dr. Strangelove), Fonda produced the low-budget production whilst Hopper took on directing duties, receiving and award at Cannes for his first work. Since its release, Easy Rider has been regarded as a symbol of free-spirited reaction against society, and even for those too young to remember its original release, it maintains its status as a classic film which characterises the attitude of a decade.
The Driver (James Taylor) spins out of Los Angeles with The Mechanic (Dennis Wilson) after winning a late night drag race. The two young men head south east on the freeway, stopping only for food, gas or a delicate adjustment on their primer grey '55 Chevrolet. Outside of Flagstaff, they take time out for lunch at a diner. When they return to their car, there is a new passenger in the back - a girl (Laurie Bird) with a tear stained face. No questions are asked: No explanation is offered. They move off. When they hit Santa Fe, they cruise up and down the streets, looking for an unsuspecting country boy to challenge their beaten up Sedan. They find him sooner than expected in a '32 Pard Roadster, follow him to the outskirts of town, race him and beat him. That night the girl shares a hotel room with The Mechanic, while The Driver prowls the bars.
Easy Rider - Hoppers best film (IMO) and summed the dude up
