Wednesday Morning Inspiration: Easy Rider

Last Wednesday I used this post to talk about a movie that painted an intimate portrait of a certain America.  Easy Rider is an interesting foil to this idea as it attempts to present a broad view of 1960's America;  A Vietnam War, racially and socially divided America.  Undoubtedly, many of you have probably seen this movie, but it truly is a masterpiece.  Aside from the fact that it rests at the heart (along with 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Graduate, etc.) of the New Hollywood movement, which changed how studios thought of cinema, it is truly a classic flick.

The style of this movie is undeniable and for anyone even remotely into motorcycles it's a can't miss.  From Jack Nicholson's southern collegiate prep to Peter Fonda's stars and bars Americana to Dennis Hopper's rugged hippie with an edge, the wardrobe alone is a selling point.  To quote the movie poster, "A man went looking for America and couldn't find it anywhere..."
