Easy Rider (1969)

Directed by Dennis Hopper

The classic tale of Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda as counter-cultural bikers on a road trip to find America.   With a tankful of cash from a dope deal, freewheeling Billy and Wyatt head east from California for Florida, picking up Jack Nicholson as a wayward lawyer along the way, but ultimately finding that challenging the establishment has its consequences.

Two-Lane Blacktop (1971)

Directed by Monte Hellman

Two nameless young men, The Driver and The Mechanic, race a Pontiac GTO with an equally nameless driver across the American landscape from New Mexico toward Washington, D.C. in their 1955 Chevy, with a teenage hitchhiker along for the ride, in Monte Hellman’s metaphorical take on the rhythms of American life, before the interstate highway era.
