    The first viewing blows you away

    But then it gets old

    Fonda preening around looking gorgeous/cool.

    Dennis Hopper acting spaced

    Jack Nickolson in his prime (best part of the movie)

    No plot to speak of - (why after Fonda had been brutally beaten up in the attack that killed Nickolson - did his face show no bruises afterwards

    cop-out ending

    Peter Fonda could act.

    Went overboard in Easy Rider with his Beautifull/cool slick imo.

    60's art movies definitely have best before dates. it was pretty groovy at the time though
