[edit] Information

In 1969, Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper changed the face of Hollywood with this seminal counterculture classic. Ushering in a new wave of anti-heroes and introducing mainstream audiences to sex n' drugs and rock n' roll, Easy Rider's influence spread throughout the Hollywood of the seventies, establishing a climate of progressive film-making that now stands as Tinseltown's last Golden Age. Easy Rider's iconic images and soundtrack still resonate with an exhilarating 'freedom', and, although very much a product of 1969, the film has achieved a timeless appeal that grows richer with each passing year. Made on a shoestring budget, this legendary road movie was one of the most stylish experiments of the New Hollywood era, and a huge hit upon its release, its success proving instrumental in persuading the big Hollywood studios to invest in more films from young directors.
