ALONG FOR THE RIDE
A Revealing Portrait of the Freewheeling Dennis Hopper, Filmmaker
Method actor, filmmaker, art collector, and all-American madman—the many sides of Dennis Hopper are explored in Nick Ebeling’s remarkable documentary, confirming Hopper as a major filmmaker, a fact often eclipsed by his legend. Through the triumph of Easy Rider, the magnificent career suicide of The Last Movie, the overlooked masterpiece Out of the Blue, and a midlife comeback after plenty of booze and brawling, Along for the Ride is a vivacious work of film biography with a freewheeling style that’s only appropriate to its anarchic subject. A series of Hopper-directed films to run concurrent with the release ofAlong For the Ride, including Easy Rider (1969), Out of the Blue (1980), Colors (1988), The Last Movie(1971), and The Hot Spot (1990).
