Director: Dennis Hopper.
Starring: Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Jack Nicholson, Antonio Mendoza, Karen Black. USA 1969. 95 mins. Colour.
Hopper’s low-budget movie of odyssey and alienation at the time of Vietnam, whose success brought Hollywood to its knees by initiating a disastrous cycle of imitative youth pictures. Great rock/folk rock score – and a star-making performance from Jack Nicholson as the drunken lawyer who hitches along for the ride.
