Easy Rider

Easy Rider.  A film that needed to be made at some point.  Two disaffected hippies ride across the land to the most awesome soundtrack that money can buy; it’s too good a formula not to. Like some kind of cinematic theory of evolution, I’m convinced that if Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper hadn’t made it, then someone else would have done something similar eventually. So why Easy Rider – what’s the deal?
