Radical Southwest Easy Rider


After two hippies on Harleys find themselves with some cash, and on the run, they head on a cross-country tour, stopping in New Mexico, where they find a commune with residents who are both open-minded and perhaps spiraling out of control, and into small-town America, where they are confronted with bigotry and hatred. A snapshot of a culture gone awry, and a winner at the Cannes Film Festival, Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper’s film remains a defining work of the 1960s. With Karen Black, Jack Nicholson. (U.S., 1967, 96m)
