Calling this a documentary gives the whole genre a bad name. So overwhelming was the success of Easy Rider that they thought it was enough for a feature film to send out a camera team to follow Denis Hopper around for a few days and record his incoherent and rather boring ramblings. No script, no idea, no plan, nothing to say at all. I kinda liked him up until now but here her comes across a vain and self centered nitwit. It makes you really happy that those hippie days are over.
One of the many low points in this home movie is, when beard stroking and chain smoking Hopper muses on the fact that he rather gives good head then f*** a beautiful woman and you sense that he is quite pleased with himself for being such a modern man. Sadly enough he destroys the overall effect when he asked his female sidekick if she considers this weird, and instead of letting her reply cuts her short and rambles on about himself being a Lesbian. So much for his respect towards women. I wish I could quote some of Hopper's platitudes to prove how boring and silly they are but as they are all so unmemorable, I can't recall any. Did I mention the horrible soundtrack? Kinda drawing by numbers Hippie Folk Music that makes you wanna smash the acoustic guitar over the singers head after the first few lines. Did I mention the nudity? Well if you have any desire to witness you hippie parents pretending to have fun with a threesome snog feast in the bathtub, you gonna have a field day here. Anyone else, stay clear.
