Odd Tuesdays presents… Easy Rider (1969)

July’s screening is Easy Rider (1969)!

JOSH’S TAKE:
If you’ve seen it, you know. If you haven’t, then wow, how embarrassed are you by that?

It’s Captain America, it’s Billy, it’s a young Jack Nicholson, and they’re all looking for America. Do they find it? Does it matter? This film *is* America.

Show up high.

ABOUT ODD TUESDAYS
Curated by EMP member Joshua Buursma, Odd Tuesdays Cineclub is dedicated to a proposition: That not all films are created equal; that some are weirder, sweeter, kinkier, and crankier than others; and that among these films are established cult favorites, essential art house classics, and more recent work that’s only begun to gather a following. In an age when media too often atomize us rather than bring us together, when we’re more likely to watch movies (especially older movies) alone on our devices rather than with a flesh-and-blood audience, it’s more urgent than ever that we deliberately come together and make seeing movies a show again. Odd Tuesdays Cineclub: Come and See.
