Dir. Dennis Hopper (USA, 1969) 95 mins.
Easy Rider follows two bikers, Wyatt (Peter Fonda) and Billy (Dennis Hopper), as they travel from Los Angeles to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Their trip takes them through limitless, untouched landscapes, various towns, a hippie commune, and a graveyard, but also through areas where local residents are increasingly narrow-minded and hateful of their long-haired freedom and use of drugs.
