About the Movie
THE AMERICAN DREAMER examines Dennis Hopper at his wildest and most creative period: in the wake of his famed directorial debut, Easy Rider and completing his follow-up opus The Last Movie. Surrounded by a cohort of friends, babes and drugs, Hopper attempts to edit his soon-to-be shunned film as his consciousness expands at an alarming speed.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: There is a fuzzy underground feel to this film: choppy editing, sudden freeze frames, maundering voiceover. It has archival value as a study of Hopper and a footnote to the American new wave.
Dennis Hopper as Dennis Hoper!
A wild look at Dennis Hopper playing himself after the massive success of Easy Rider. Almost a time capsule back to the 70s, it's a lost piece of cinema that set the scene for films like "I'm Still Here" or even "Being John Malkovich"!
what a trip!
I saw this film at BAM a few months ago and loved it. The director was there and talked about how Hopper got involved and acted. crazy interesting!
Dennis Hopper is my favorite and this documentary is unlike anything I've seen before. Dennis is so cool and it seems like he's just like his character in Easy Rider... and I didn't know he was a lesbian!"
