The most “experimental” part of Easy Rider is when the hippie duo and two girls drop acid in a graveyard. I didn’t know whether to laugh or be disturbed by this scene. Maybe Hollywood shouldn’t experiment with trying to be artsy. The acid was obviously bad. Almost as bad as the religious symbolism during the scene. Everyone knows that the best cinematic graveyard scenes are in Jim Van Bebber’s Deadbeat at Dawn and My Sweet Satan. All bowl hits should be in tribute to Satan!
The ending of Easy Rider is by far the best part of the film. Excellently executed and impacting, its what makes me decide to go back to Easy Rider every year. Dennis Hopper was uninterested in peace and love. He was more interested in taking tons of drugs and passing out next to a curb.
