~This documentry is an exellent pice of work like the book of the same title which i read while i was at college. The movie discusses the old movie system and how it was brought in to the 20th century, by a few directors such as Scorsese, Coppola, Peckinpah, Beaty, Penn and Denis Hopper. It shows how the directors like penn were influenced by french directors like Trafut etc. but what makes the film so good to watch is the interviews from the directors themselves. I would have liked a little more~~ information on Sam Peckinpah & John Cassevttes that would have given the movie 5 stars in my opinion.~

Format: DVD
First off, there's no way that a film adaptation can compare to the great book Easy Riders, Raging Bulls. There's just so much detail and nuance in the book that can't be transalted to the silver screen. That said, this documentary is a valiant attempt to cover the period in which the new Hollywood (inspired largely by the French New Wave and the late-sixties counterculture in general) briefly rocked the boat before being absorbed by the moribund studio system that it revived.
Of particular interest are the complete interviews on the bonus disc. You get to here some of the main and supporting players give their take on that heady time. If you love Scorcese, Coppola, et al, this DVD is a must-see.

I recommend this film to movie lovers who want to know about Hollywood after the demise of the studio system. Interesting and fun to watch.

Excellent documentaire. Il nous faits Connaître le cinéma de l'époque. En plus il y a un 2e DVD. Qui nous donne des entrevues avec les réalisateurs de l'époque. Pour 10$ Ca vaut la peine.

Format: DVD
"Easy Riders, Raging Bulls" is based on Peter Biskind's book of the same name which explored the rise and the fall of the director's era in Hollywood during the 1970s. The film actually starts in 1966, when the film industry was suffering low ticket sales under an obsolete studio system. The old studio bosses no longer understood their young audiences who frequented drive-ins and art house theaters. While the Nouvelle Vague raged in Europe, American movies weren't making money. A group of young filmmakers emerged, the first generation of directors to self-consciously view film as an art form: Dennis Hopper, Peter Bogdanovich, Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Warren Beatty, Sam Peckinpah, Paul Schrader, Robert Altman, Stephen Spielberg, George Lucas, Roger Corman, Roman Polanski. Through still photographs, film clips, interviews, and narration by William H. Macy, "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls" traces these filmmakers' rise to power in the 1970s under the wings of inspired producers like Robert Evans, Bert Schneider, and Peter Bart, through the Age of the Auteur, and to the eventual decline in directors' power in the late 1970s due to the rise of the special effects film and the consequences of the directors' own excesses.
Hollywood of the 1970s is certainly an interesting subject, populated with interesting characters. But "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls" is so plodding that it seems twice as long as it actually is. I'm fascinated by film history, but there was a point when I didn't think I'd make it through this film. And that was only half an hour into it. "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls" covers a lot of ground, but it's really an overview of the changing Hollywood power structure 1966-1980 and the films that resulted. Nothing is discussed in much detail.
