    Easy Rider

    ★★★

    Easy Rider marks a significant turning point in American cinema, paving the way for New Hollywood.

    I tried to watch this through the eyes of a cinemagoer in 1969. The taboo subject matter and relaxed approach to storytelling doesn't seem too risky by today's standards, but back then it was game changing.

    Still, I can't say it's enjoyable. Jack Nicholson is iconic, there are some solid needledrops and the scenery is pretty. Everything else is tedious. The LSD trip scene reminded me of a bad student film.

    I'm going to happily jump on the bandwagon and simply state that this film is a masterpiece! It blows my mind that this was only Tarantino's second feature, he developed his talents so much from Reservoir Dogs.

    ★★★★½

    I can't be the only one who watches Studio Ghibli films as a form of therapy. My Neighbor Totoro melts my heart and completely destroys my teenage cynicism.
