Easy Riders, Raging Bull

4

Want a rich rundown of the most exciting era in movie history? Peter Biskind's book, Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, is still the only tome in town, telling the tales of a fresh crop of Godard-weaned lunatics who stormed the Hollywood asylum in the '70s and rolled out a procession of classics (Easy Rider, Taxi Driver, Jaws...).

This feature-length doc, first shown on BBC4, is a worthy companion - pacey, candid, and told exclusively through interviews with key players. A few of the big boys (Lucas, Coppola) don't show up, but the gaps are neatly plugged with old interviews and background footage.
