Two bikers drive across America with nothing but cash from a cocaine deal and the wind in their hair. Classic guitar cuts and an engine’s roar provide the soundtrack for Hopper and Fonda’s troubled journey towards an abstract concept of freedom in the purported ‘land of the free’. A time capsule of American iconography, which marks a significant countercultural shift, it made stars of its leads and greatly influenced Hollywood’s approach to filmmaking.
