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.


Critic Reviews for Along for the Ride

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

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.

November 2, 2017 | Full Review…

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

November 2, 2017 | Full Review…

The snazzy, stylish black and white photography is not only appropriately expressionistic for the dips and valleys of Hopper's career; it gives the film a sense of visual personality that's often sorely lacking in bio-docs.

That renaissance wild man Dennis Hopper, once chosen as one of Andy Warhol's "Most Beautiful," is featured in a very personal memoir.

November 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Nick Ebeling's movie sets its sights on adulatory tribute, needlessly venerating films like "The Last Movie" and generally adorning Hopper's legacy with saintliness.
