Along for the Ride
Directed by Nick Ebeling • 2016 • United States
Method actor, filmmaker, art collector, and all-American anarchist—the many sides of Hollywood iconoclast Dennis Hopper are explored in Nick Ebeling’s coolly stylish, fittingly unconventional documentary. Drawing heavily from the testimony of Hopper’s right-hand man Satya De La Manitou—as well as interviews with collaborators like David Lynch and Wim Wenders—ALONG FOR THE RIDE features previously unseen photos and footage that span the triumph of EASY RIDER, the magnificent career suicide of THE LAST MOVIE, and a roaring midlife comeback after years of boozing and brawling.
