Product Description

Amazon.ca

Two cool guys head out on motorcycles in search of... well, America, but they'll settle for sex and drugs and rock & roll. There's plenty of each as Captain America (Peter Fonda) and paranoid Billy (Dennis Hopper) encounter a commune, convert a small-town drunk (Jack Nicholson) to the Grin Reefer, pick up two pretty lilies of the alley, Karen Black and Toni Basil (who hit the pop charts in the '80s--check out "Mickey"), and get shot for having long hair. Nicholson won an Oscar nomination and Best Supporting Actor nods from the National Society of Film Critics and the New York Film Critics Circle, but his acting was better than they knew: he had to pretend to be straight and gradually get plastered in many, many takes using real weed. Find out the far wilder, funnier story behind the film in the book Easy Riders, Raging Bulls and Peter Fonda's Don't Tell Dad. --Tim Appelo --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

VIDEO:

The 40th Anniversary Edition of Easy Rider arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. The transfer is quite spectacular, retaining its natural grain. During the Mardi Gras sequence which was shot with 16 mm camera, the grain was a little too heavy, thus diminishing video quality somewhat. The colours are amazing. The red, white, and blue of the American flag pop off Wyatt’s bike and gear. The Southwestern countryside looks marvelous as the natural light constantly changes the hue of the majestic landscape. The blue of Fonda's eyes and of the sky reflecting off the choppers' chrome is vibrant. Flesh tones are accurate and consistent throughout. The images are sharp with well-rendered textures and details that contribute to the 3-D dimensionality. The blacks, which are normally strong, suffer from crush as some detail gets lost in them. (4.0/5)

AUDIO:

Easy Rider revs up on blu-ray with a quality Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Dialogue is clear as it comes out through the front center. There is good directionality as planes roar through the soundfield during a drug deal at an airport. Still, Easy Rider's soundtrack is all about the music, and its delivery here is exceptional. Born to be Wild by Steppenwolf features superb clarity through the entire range, including a solid low end. It sounds so good that it is almost worth watching the opening title sequence twice just to revel in the exceptional delivery afforded by this blu-ray disc. The other tracks - The Weight and I Wasn't Born to Follow, for instance - are, likewise, wonderfully presented. All in all, Easy Rider sounds fantastic. (4.0/5)

AWARDS:

Easy Rider was nominated for 2 Oscars in 1970: Best Supporting Actor (Jack Nicholson) and Best Screenplay.

Although I am not a motorcycle rider and I have never used psychedelic drugs, I still found this to be a great movie. If you have allowed these two elements of the film to keep you from watching it, I highly recommend putting those thoughts aside and viewing this.
The main idea of the film is freedom. Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper take a motorcyle trip across the USA while heading for Mardi Gras. Although this is the destination, Peter Fonda (is looking for something. This something could be America, but you feel it is more profound than that. You receive hints from the things he says to others.
For instance, he and Hopper have stopped at a farm to fix one of the bikes and to eat. After talking with the farmer, Captain USA comments about how great it is to be here on the land doing your own thing.
Jack Nicholson has the best lines of the movie when he explains that we love to talk about freedom, but we are scared to death of people who actually live it. A very important idea considering the war that was going on at the time of this movie.
Again, I highly recommend watching this movie.

I really didn't see a big plot, I found the movie more of a portrayal of a biker's treatment from others on a road trip. It will, or it should, make you think about situations that you have witnessed the treatment of someone that was different. The end was abrupt and you really don't see it coming, it really surprised me.

The 1960s saw a lot of social change. The hippie movement, the increased exposure of recreational drugs, and the idea of freedom were all on the rise. Easy Rider captures that time and tries to depict a feeling. For the most part, it succeeds.

Wyatt (Peter Fonda) and Billy (Dennis Hopper) star as two bikers who are riding across America on their choppers. We see them buying and selling drugs, and meeting up with other like-minded people. They are determined to leave behind the established system and make their own way in life. In a way, this is a road movie, but it's also much more.

The biggest source of conflict in the movie comes in the form of people who see Wyatt and Billy as dangerous non-conformists. They are arrested on dubious grounds and receive verbal abuse from some of the townspeople they meet along the way.

The story itself is actually pretty thin. This is a movie that is more about the lifestyle than the plot of its characters. The idea of communes and free love are not as shocking as when they first appeared, but imagine watching the ideas portrayed in this movie when it was released.

Jack Nicholson shows up as lawyer George Hanson, who helps out our rebellious heroes when they find themselves locked up in jail. Nicholson's role is brief, but memorable. Hopper and Fonda do a great job of portraying the free-spirited bikers.

Music plays a big part in the movie and helps to establish the 60s feel. Be ready for Hendrix, Steppenwolf, The Byrds, The Band, Roger McGuinn, and many other performers from the era. The other star is the American scenery. The mountain locations are particularly spectacular.

The movie is dated now, but I found it enjoyable nonetheless.
