  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Based on the book by Peter Biskind, "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls: How The Sex-Drugs-And-Rock

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 documentary picture looks really great. Combining interviews with filmmakers, behind-the-scenes archival footage, film clips, photographs, and creative transitions, the picture is comprised of various sources. The unique use of movie posters and graphics really add visual appeal to the subject. Most of the interviews are conducted before a jet-black background. Colors are nicely saturated and completely solid. This is one of the most visually appealing documentaries and it complements the subject matter very well. (Suzanne Hodges)
