Motorpsycho Matinée #2: Easy Rider

easy-rider-film-poster

Starring: Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Jack Nicholson Director: Dennis Hopper Writer(s): Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Terry Southern Studio: Columbia Runtime: 95 minutes Rated: R Official Score: 5 Stars One of my favorite mini-genres of movies is the latter day western. In these types of movies, set normally in the early 20th century, you see the last of the true cowboys fighting the expansion/encroachment on their way of life that was surely coming with the rapidly advancing technology and population boom of that time. There’s indeed something quite romantic about being the last of a particular breed, at the closing epoch of a famous era. Easy Rider is that kind of movie, but for the 1960s counter-culture generation instead of the 1890s cattle culture generation. And it has the added bonus … [Read more...]

  Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Tye Sheridan, Jacob Lofland Director: Jeff Nichols Writer(s) Jeff Nichols Studio: Lionsgate Runtime: 130 Min Rated: PG-13 Official Score: 4 out of 5 Stars Ellis and Neckbone live on the banks of the Arkansas river. What an amazing place to grow up this must be. Ellis stays on a houseboat with his father and mother, who are going through problems he cannot even begin to understand, but that may soon cost him his entire known way of life. In the evenings he sneaks off with his best friend, the aforementioned Neckbone, to explore the river and the many hidden treasures contained therein. One such adventure leads them to a small island, where they find their biggest score yet, a boat that has somehow wound up stuck in the high branches of … [Read more...]
