Easy Riders, Raging Bulls

Easy Riders, Raging Bulls

Director: Kenneth Bowser Cast: Dede Allen, Peter Bart, Andrew Cohen



Kenneth Bowser's documentary Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, based on the book of the same name by Peter Biskind, consists primarily of interviews with many of the artists and executives involved in the New Hollywood movement of the 1970s. The film is presented on this disc in a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. Supplemental materials include over an hour and a half of additional interview footage that is structured in chapters pertaining to specific topics. This extra footage is all as good as the material in the finished film, leading one to believe these sequences were cut for no reason other than time. Along with A Decade Under the Influence, this disc offers an excellent survey of an important period in American film.
