Hippies, Bikers, Rebels and Thieves
LA-based film scholar and Occidental College faculty member Katie Mills, author of The Road Story and the Rebel, notes that Play It As It Lays is a key film in the genre, in part because it highlights the genre's limits. "I think the film is very interesting visually, with interpretations of the underground film and the biker genre within the great shots of Los Angeles streets, freeways and road culture," she says. Mills also celebrates the film's subject matter.
The series also includes such iconic films as Two Lane Blacktop, Easy Rider, Bonnie and Clyde and Zabriskie Point. While these are great movies, are they really so deeply relevant to viewers in 2011? Mills says yes, definitely.
