  Easy Riders, Raging Bulls [read more]
  Golden era of Hollywood uncovered
  Kenneth Bowser's revealing documentary (based on Peter Biskind's controversial best-selling book) is to premier on UK DVD in November. Covering a period that began with Dennis Hopper's groundbreaking 1969 film Easy Rider and ended with Martin Scorsese's devastatingly brilliant Raging Bull, Bowser's documentary tells the inside story of an astonishing era fuelled by sex, drugs, fame and money.

Through a series of interviews the story is candidly told of how an industry in decline was saved by a generation of young mavericks who took control of Hollywood and found success by breaking all the rules. Among the many interviewees are Richard Dreyfuss, John Milius, Peter Bogdanovich, Roger Corman, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Kris Kristofferson, Margot Kidder and Paul Schrader. Also illustrated by numerous excerpts from the relevant movies, the film features rare, behind-the-scenes footage of luminaries such as Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, Dennis Hopper, Martin Scorsese, Roman Polanski and others.
