Over the years since it's release, I still see the flaws and the genius in some parts of Easy Rider. Hopper has the most fun being himself, Peter Fonda hasn't learned believable acting techniques yet as he finally did 40 years later, but his stiffness tends to lend to his character's innocent search for that elusive "something else" that so many were searching for then and still search for. Nicholson of course is everyone's favorite. He's likeable, funny and yet almost foresees the trouble coming for them and the country in that most memorable line "this used to be a hell of a good country". In many ways we're in the same mess now as then, so it's still a sobering scene. I still cringe at the commune scene with the naive preachy talk about "city kids making it" as farmers. Those that actually tried that are probably living comfortable suburban lives today and glad of it. The soundtrack is still the best ever.

One of the best films I have seen in this year. It was entertaining and interesting. Great performances a must see for all. “Truly a really great movie worth the long library wait”.

a great movie in every respect, very different and ALOT better than the crappy movies we have today. If you like bikes, freedom, and hippies this movie is for you

This 1969 epic is still a classic look-see... after all these years! This is the beginning of the young Jack Nicholson I love best, as an actor!!!
