Although there are some death scenes, this movie captured the LA culture of the late '70s, early '80s spot on.
The movie captures the freedom and the energy America had some years ago before it started to shift to more of a beehive mentality. It also features the pre Gen-X culture when the ME generation ruled the world.
One thing I can say about the ME generation is that they can party like nobody else. Music was big part of it, and the music in this movie is great.
The women of this movie are also great. I'm sure some women would say the same about the men in this movie too.
What this country lost in terms of the car culture seems to be still going in parts of Asia, especially Japan. Initial D is almost a transplant of this movie to the hills of Mt. Akina.
The good old days. I like this movie better than the Easy Rider. It really brings back the good times.
