Easy Rider. One of the great movies of independent Hollywood—made on a dime, an epic American tragedy that captured the late 60s as they happened.

Original Trailer:

Easy Rider, a 1969 American road movie written by Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper and Terry Southern and directed by Hopper, about two bikers who travel through the American Southwest and South. It stars Fonda, Hopper, and Jack Nicholson and was produced by Fonda. Easy Rider helped spark the New Hollywood phase of filmmaking during the late sixties.
As a landmark counterculture film and “touchstone for a generation” that “captured the national imagination,” Easy Rider explores the societal landscape, issues, and tensions in the United States during the 1960s, such as the rise and fall of the hippie movement, drug use, and communal lifestyle.

The full film’s on youtube, for now:
