Synopsis

A documentary about actor/director Dennis Hopper, showing him at his home and studio putting together his film The Last Movie.

Our take

Dennis Hopper’s newly restored cult film explodes documentary form and became the portrait of an epoch! Shot during the drug-and-orgy fueled making of his legendary follow-up to Easy Rider, Hopper stars as himself: a new kind of Hollywood—and American—icon.

The American Dreamer Directed by L.M. Kit Carson, Lawrence Schiller
