When the low-budget biker movie Easy Rider shocked Hollywood with its success in 1969, a new Hollywood era was born. This was an age when talented filmmakers such as Scorcese, Coppola, and Spielberg, along with a new breed of actors, including DeNiro, Pacino, and Nicholson, became the powerful figures who would make such modern classics as The Godfather, Chinatown, Taxi Driver, and Jaws. Easy Rider, Raging Bulls follows the wild ride that was Hollywood in the 70s - an unabashed celebration of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll (both on screen and off) and a climate where innovation and experimentation reigned supreme.



"Peter Biskind's great, scathing, news-packed history...is one hell of an elixir - salty with flavorsome gossip, sour with the aftertaste of misspent careers, intoxicating with one revelation after another...an 'A.'" ( Entertainment Weekly)

More of a scandal romp than a history, but still interesting

First of all - don't buy this if you want to get a clear and simple overview into the film history of the New Hollywood cinema. That story is in here, too, but it's kind of convoluted and besides the point. Peter Biskind has written a book about sex, drugs and the people who use them while making some films at the same time. At times he seems to be interested only in the scandal of it all, while almost involutarily writing a really fascinating book about art. So if you already know names like Dennis Hopper, Warren Beatty and Hal Ashby, then this can really be a valuable multi-biography full of unbelievable anecdotes and brillant insights into the connection of art and power.
Reader Dick Hill stilll enjoys the naughty bits a little too much, but on the other hand he effortlessly carries the listener over some of the more boring parts of this massive volume, so bear with him. A fine audiobook, but not recommended for the uninitiated.
