    This one of the essentials, a socratic dialog on freedom in the guise of a biker pic, brilliantly acted and directed.

    The counter-culture road movie that marked a renaissance in film making. Two hippies planning to sell drugs in New Orleans ride to their destination. Hopper & Fonda work excellently in front-of & behind the camera, Nicholson earned his first Oscar nomination as an lawyer who shares in the hippies philosophies. The cinematography and score make great use of the film's themes of freedom & escapism, tapping into how the youths of the nation viewed mainstream culture. The ending however, suggest that not everybody shares the same ideals and that freedom comes with a high price. I give it a 5/5.

    When small town values meet city immorals this is what happens. Good movie, I guess, I usually root for the underdog, but in this case, I really could care less. The bikers are sterotypes of losers of the time and in the end get what comes them. It would have been a bit bolder from a direction POV to have one of them "grow-up" and start acting adult to contrast to the already flat characters. All in all it is an okay film.

    Great Movie, However Cablevision cut off with 10 minutes left in the movie. So this damn review is incomplete. Please show it again!

    This is still the best movie ever made about motorcycles as well as hippies although it isn't about either one. It's actually about materialism. What is life really about is what it deals with. The American flag on the gas tank with the money hidden in it should give you a hint. Fonda and Hopper make the big drug score and don't have to work anymore. Isn't that everyones dream? To make enough money to never work again? They travel from farm to commune to small town passing up each way of life preferring instead to party. Fonda realizes their mistake. The whole movie is packed with symbolism. Hint: motorcycles symbolize the horse. The two lead characters are Billy and Wyatt......get it?
