About the Movie
Method actor, filmmaker, art collector, and all-American anarchist—the many sides of the legendary Hollywood maverick Dennis Hopper are explored in Nick Ebeling’s documentary. Drawing heavily from the testimony of Hopper’s right-hand man Satya De La Manitou, it features previously unseen photos and footage that span the triumph of Easy Rider, the magnificent career suicide of The Last Movie, and a midlife comeback after an overwhelming amount of booze and brawling.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: As moving as Mr. de la Manitou's testimony sometimes is, this movie too often feels like a credulity-straining attempt at hagiography.
Fresh: What's ultimately moving about "Along for the Ride" is that it communicates how Dennis Hopper, by sticking true to his reckless muse, was an artist who changed things, and maybe changed everything.
Fresh: As it circles the life and legacy of actor, artist and filmmaker Dennis Hopper, the documentary "Along for the Ride" uses the standard tools of the medium, but it follows his renegade spirit and produces something entirely unique.
Fresh: This rip-roaring tribute to a maverick artist trips along like a surreal odyssey, punctuated by lively reminiscences, choice clips and superb photographic material.
