Top cult 60s film.
- Easy Rider review by NC
Must be biggest profit ever in film making. Simple film, simply made, unknown folk, great music, great bikes. One of top ten ever films for the reasons above...............

One of the most shocking and abrupt endings in cinematic history...
- Easy Rider review by CP Customer
I was born in 1982, so Easy Rider's 60s-sentiment of drugs and rebellion doesn't exactly speak volumes to me, but I appreciate it nonetheless as a cultural time capsule. As two free-spirited, high-as-kites bikers (Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper) drift across the country towards Mardi Gras, they encounter a hippie commune, an ACLU lawyer (brilliantly played by Jack Nicholson) and, most poignantly, people offended by their long hair and counter-culturism. This movie is an antique whose time has long-passed. It's much more about what it represents than what it explicitly shows, as I'm sure many people have complained that "nothing happens". Overall, a good, laid-back road-trip story with an emblematic cultural importance....well worth seeing if you haven't already!
