Along for the Ride
DIRECTOR: NICK EBELING
Method actor, filmmaker, art collector, and all-American madman—the many sides of Dennis Hopper are explored in Nick Ebeling’s remarkable documentary, which draws heavily from the testimony of Hopper’s burly biker buddy and right-hand man Satya De La Manitou. Moving through the triumph of Easy Rider, the magnificent self-immolation of The Last Movie, and a midlife comeback after plenty of booze and brawling, Along for the Ride is a vivacious work of film biography with a freewheeling style that’s only appropriate to its anarchic subject.
