Michael Stuart Kelly Posted October 30, 2007 Share Posted October 30, 2007 I just saw Easy Rider for the first time.Ugh!Jack Nicholson, in a supporting role, stole the film and said a few "heavy" comments. It was interesting to see how his acting style has not changed ever since he was young. Some nice classical rock. Other than that, there was no real story. I do not feel any richer for having seen this boring film. Here's the plot for those who haven't seen it.Two drug dealers, one cocky (Dennis Hopper) and one meditative (Peter Fonda), buy what looks like 2 kilos of cocaine in Mexico, sell it to a dude in LA (Phil Specter) for a huge profit, take off on some righteous bikes to go cross country presumably to retire in Florida (with LOTS of long boring National Geographic-like traveling shots), stop over in a hippie commune, run into different kinds of trouble with Southerners because of their long hair and strange clothes, take an alcoholic Southern lawyer they met in jail (Nicholson) on the road to go down and see the Mardi Gras in New Orleans, get beat up at night in their sleep while the lawyer gets killed, go to a whore house, drop acid with two whores in a cemetery during the Mardi Gras and get crazy for a while, leave and get shot and killed on the road by a country bumpkin for no good reason. Nonstop shots of smoking marijuana all throughout the film.Like I said:Ugh!Artsy-fartsy crap.Michael Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
