Movie Info

Along for the Ride explores the highs, lows and phoenix-like ascension of iconic Hollywood maverick Dennis Hopper--as seen through the eyes of his longtime right-hand man and devoted friend, Satya dela Manitou. Nick Ebeling's debut feature film chronicles the unlikely duo's incredible 40+ year journey and enduring bond, as intimately complex as Hopper's own legendary career.

  • But in the end the film seems overly worshipful of its subject, pressing us too hard to admire him as the prototype of the romantically self-destructive artist.

  • As it circles the life and legacy of actor, artist and filmmaker Dennis Hopper, the documentary "Along for the Ride" uses the standard tools of the medium, but it follows his renegade spirit and produces something entirely unique.

  • This rip-roaring tribute to a maverick artist trips along like a surreal odyssey, punctuated by lively reminiscences, choice clips and superb photographic material.

  • What's ultimately moving about "Along for the Ride" is that it communicates how Dennis Hopper, by sticking true to his reckless muse, was an artist who changed things, and maybe changed everything.

  • As moving as Mr. de la Manitou's testimony sometimes is, this movie too often feels like a credulity-straining attempt at hagiography.

  • Held together by a deliciously ominous score by Gemma Thompson and striking b&w cinematography, Along for the Ride isn't the final word on Dennis Hopper, but it's a fun trip.
