Fonda and Hopper, it should by this time go without saying, give immense performances.

None of the forced violence, lawlessness, rapist, gratuitous speed aspects of the motorbike clan in this perceptive film.

The film may be a relic now, but it is a fascinating souvenir -- particularly in its narcissism and fatalism -- of how the hippie movement thought of itself.

[A] simplistic amalgam of travelogue and the zoom lens.

Hopper, Fonda and their friends went out into America looking for a movie and found instead a small, pious statement (upper case) about our society (upper case), which is sick (upper case). It's pretty but lower case cinema.

It plays today more as a period piece than as living cinema, but it captures so surely the tone and look of that moment in time.
