Written by Huggo. There is so much going on in the multi-layered Easy Rider. For one thing, it doesn't glorify hippies. In fact, Hopper and Fonda are really just businessmen, out to make the big score.
They're quintessentially American -- Fonda calls himself Captain America, and wears an American flag on his leather jacket, and has red, white and blue painted on his chopper's gas tank.
These guys really just want to make money, not change society. If it were the 80's, they'd be selling computers. Also, some interesting symbolism -- Fonda puts the stash of money resulting from the drug sale in his gas tank -- in other words, money fuels the American dream.
This film is also an anti-Western. Instead of heading west, these guys head east. They pass through Monument Valley, site of many John Ford westerns.
At an early point, they fix their choppers in a barn while a farmer fixes the horseshoes for his horse. There is a structure to this seemingly freewheeling tale: the trip starts out idealistically.
After they go to the commune, Fonda and Hopper skinny-dip with two hippie chicks in a bucolic, peaceful setting.
The music is laid-back, the Byrds, the drug used is marijuana. It's an idealized example of "free love.
Fonda breaks down during an acid trip, and instead of music we hear the jarring sounds of an industrial, urbanized landscape -- geographically and symbolically far away from that Arizona commune.
This film doesn't glorify the hippie ethos -- in fact, it almost seems like a neo-conservative critique on the limitations of the hippie experience.
Late in the film, Fonda tells Hopper, "We blew it," a line that prefigures the ultimate disillusionment that set in during the early 70's, when the Age of Aquarius gave way to Watergate, malaise, Reagan and rampant consumerism.

Stopping to eat at a small-town Louisiana diner, the trio attracts the attention of the locals.
The girls in the restaurant think they are exciting, but the local men and a police officer make denigrating comments and taunts. Wyatt, Billy, and George decide to leave without any fuss.
They make camp outside town. In the middle of the night, a group of locals attack the sleeping trio, beating them with clubs.
Billy screams and brandishes a knife, and the attackers leave. Wyatt and Billy suffer minor injuries, but George has been bludgeoned to death.
Wyatt and Billy wrap George's body in his sleeping bag, gather his belongings, and vow to return the items to his family.
They continue to New Orleans and find a brothel George had told them about. They end up in a French Quarter cemetery, where all four ingest the LSD the hitch-hiker had given to Wyatt and experience a bad trip.
The next morning, as they are overtaken on a two-lane country road by two local men in an older pickup truck, the passenger in the truck reaches for a shotgun, saying he will scare them.
As they pass Billy, the passenger fires, and Billy has a lowside crash. The truck passes Wyatt who has stopped, and Wyatt rides back to Billy, finding him lying flat on the side of the road and covered in blood.
Wyatt tells Billy he's going to get help and covers Billy's wound with his own leather jacket. Wyatt then rides down the road toward the pickup as it makes a U-turn.
Passing in the opposite direction, the passenger fires the shotgun again, this time through the driver's-side window. Wyatt's riderless motorcycle flies through the air and comes apart before landing and becoming engulfed in flames.
Hopper and Fonda's first collaboration was in The Trip , written by Jack Nicholson, which had themes and characters similar to those of Easy Rider.
When seeing a still of himself and Bruce Dern in The Wild Angels , Peter Fonda had the idea of a modern Western , involving two bikers travelling around the country and eventually getting shot by hillbillies.
He called Dennis Hopper, and the two decided to turn that into a movie, The Loners , with Hopper directing, Fonda producing, and both starring and writing.
They brought in screenwriter Terry Southern , who came up with the title Easy Rider. The film was mostly shot without a screenplay, with ad-libbed lines, and production started with only the outline and the names of the protagonists.
In an interview published in [Southern died in ] he said, "You know if Den Hopper improvises a dozen lines and six of them survive the cutting room floor he'll put in for screenplay credit.
Now it would be almost impossible to exaggerate his contribution to the film—but, by George, he manages to do it every time. According to Southern, Fonda and Hopper didn't seek screenplay credit until after the first screenings of the film, which required Southern's agreement due to writers guild policies.
Southern says he agreed out of a sense of camaraderie, and that Hopper later took credit for the entire script. When Torn met with Hopper and Fonda at a New York restaurant in early to discuss the role, Hopper began ranting about the " rednecks " he had encountered on his scouting trip to the South.
Torn, a Texan, took exception to some of Hopper's remarks, and the two almost came to blows, as a result of which Torn withdrew from the project.
Hopper was said [ by whom? During test shooting on location in New Orleans, Hopper fought with the production's ad hoc crew for control.
At one point he entered into a physical confrontation with photographer Barry Feinstein , who was one of the camera operators for the shoot.
After this turmoil, Hopper and Fonda decided to assemble a proper crew for the rest of the film. Allegedly, [ by whom? The hippie commune was recreated from pictures and shot at a site overlooking Malibu Canyon, since the New Buffalo commune in Arroyo Hondo near Taos, New Mexico , did not permit shooting there.
A short clip near the beginning of the film shows Wyatt and Billy on Route 66 in Flagstaff, Arizona , passing a large figure of a lumberjack.
That lumberjack statue—once situated in front of the Lumberjack Cafe—remains in Flagstaff, but now stands inside the J. Most of the film is shot outside with natural lighting.
Hopper said all the outdoor shooting was an intentional choice on his part, because "God is a great gaffer.
Billodeau—were Krotz Springs locals. While shooting the cemetery scene, Hopper tried to convince Fonda to talk to the statue of the Madonna as though it were Fonda's mother who had committed suicide when he was 10 years old and ask her why she left him.
Although Fonda was reluctant, he eventually complied. Despite being filmed in the first half of , roughly between Mardi Gras and the assassination of Robert F.
Kennedy , with production starting on February 22,  the film did not have a U. The delay was partially due to a protracted editing process.
Inspired by A Space Odyssey , one of Hopper's proposed cuts was minutes long, including extensive use of the " flash-forward " narrative device, wherein scenes from later in the movie are inserted into the current scene.
Only one flash-forward survives in the final edit: when Wyatt in the New Orleans brothel has a premonition of the final scene.
At the request of Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider , Henry Jaglom was brought in to edit the film into its current form, while Schneider purchased Hopper a trip to Taos so he would not interfere with the recut.
Upon seeing the final cut, Hopper was originally displeased, saying that his movie was "turned into a TV show," but he eventually accepted, claiming that Jaglom had crafted the film the way Hopper had originally intended.
Despite the large part he played in shaping the film, Jaglom only received credit as an "Editorial Consultant.
There are various reports [ by whom? All deleted footage is believed [ by whom? Some of the scenes which were in the original cut but were deleted are: .
Easy Rider' s style — the jump cuts, time shifts, flash forwards, flashbacks, jerky hand-held cameras, fractured narrative and improvised acting — can be seen as a cinematic translation of the psychedelic experience.
The motorcycles for the film, based on hardtail frames and panhead engines , were designed and built by two chopper builders — Cliff Vaughs and Ben Hardy — following ideas of Peter Fonda, and handled by Tex Hall and Dan Haggerty during shooting.
In total, four former police bikes were used in the film. Each bike had a backup to make sure that shooting could continue in case one of the old machines failed or got wrecked accidentally.
One "Captain America" was demolished in the final scene, while the other three were stolen and probably taken apart before their significance as movie props became known.
The provenance of existing Captain America motorcycles is unclear, and has been the subject of much litigation. Hopper and Fonda hosted a wrap party for the movie and then realized they had not yet shot the final campfire scene.
Thus, it was shot after the bikes had already been stolen, which is why they are not visible in the background as in the other campfire scenes.
In , Easy Rider was added to the United States National Film Registry , having been deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.
Vincent Canby of The New York Times called it "pretty but lower case cinema" despite the "upper case" "pious statement about our society which is sick".
He was mildly impressed by the photography, rock score and Nicholson's performance. Heavily influenced by the French New Wave , the films of the so-called "post-classical Hollywood" came to represent a counterculture generation increasingly disillusioned with its government as well as the government's effects on the world at large and the establishment in general.
Vice President Spiro Agnew criticized Easy Rider , along with the band Jefferson Airplane , as examples of the permissiveness of the s counterculture.
The film's success, and the new era of Hollywood that it helped usher in, gave Hopper the chance to direct again with complete artistic control.
The result was 's The Last Movie , which was a notable box office and critical failure, effectively ending Hopper's career as a director for well over a decade.
It also gave Fonda the chance to direct with The Hired Hand although he rarely produced again. On the other hand, Hopper increasingly got control over every aspect over the course of the project and decided to throw CSNY out behind Fonda's back, telling the band as an excuse, "Look, you guys are really good musicians, but honestly, anybody who rides in a limo can't comprehend my movie, so I'm gonna have to say no to this, and if you guys try to get in the studio again, I may have to cause you some bodily harm.
Inspired by the movie, Hendrix later wrote a song " Ezy Ryder ", with lyrics reflecting film's themes.
