Movie Reviews By Bil Antoniou

Easy Rider


(out of 5)

This classic is just as hip and fresh today as it was when it was originally released.  and  play bikers who decide to go against their straight-laced contemporaries and ride their choppers across America from Los Angeles to New Orleans. Their various encounters with strange characters make up most of the story, none more memorable than when they pick up a tight ACLU lawyer () and give him a reason to relax. The film launched Nicholson’s career and has been seen since as a milestone in counterculture filmmaking of the late sixties. Fonda, giving one of his best performances, and Hopper co-wrote the excellent screenplay with Terry Southern.
