Easy Rider and Scoundrel Days

One of the most iconoclastic films ever made for mainstream audiences, Dennis Hopper's 1969 anti-establishment classic "Easy Rider" has easily stood the test of time as one of the most culturally and socially relevant flicks of modern times. Simultaneously promoting and decrying the vagaries of a turbulent American society ravaged by a rampant drug culture and the horrors of the Vietnam War, "Easy Rider" is a cinematic experience that should belong in any self-respecting film critics' top ten list. Check out an insightful montage video clip of scenes from the film, appropriately set to a-ha's angsty 1986 existentialist rant "Scoundrel Days" right here.
