Easy Rider (1969)

Just watched this 50 year old movie for the first time.

I was lied-to. This is not a motorcycle movie. This is a drug movie that happens to have motorcycles in it. It also has the main characters acting like dicks, perpetually high and/or drunk, showing up unannounced at various private residences like they own the place, and they don’t even have riding skills worth a damn, duck-walking their machines everywhere.

Oh and there was a random murder, with an unceremonious disposal of the body. Then some prostitutes and a weird drug-fueled montage. Then two more random murders.

I don’t know what this movie is trying to convey, except Drugs = Freedom, and all squares are murderers and bigots.

Two thumbs down, would not watch again
