In 1971, Dennis Hopper was attempting to complete his experimental film The Last Movie, which the studios were hoping (vainly) would be a zeitgeist moneyspinner to rival Easy Rider. At the same time, Hopper was submitting to the inspection of documentary makers LM Kit Carson and Lawrence Schiller; the result was this strange, downbeat study of Hopper on location and in his studio. Hopper demonstrates the creepy obsession with guns we know about: we see him fondle revolvers in his car, and firing both these and a hefty assault rifle in the desert. Did Carson and Schiller provide the guns? They appear to have arranged for a number of Playgirls to hang out with Hopper, just for this film, and get some bizarre, contrived softcore group sex scenes with Hopper and them in the bathtub.

Dennis Hopper’s recent announcement of terminal cancer jump-started a long-overdue appreciation of his art and life. He got a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame last month (finally), and newspaper and blog appreciations are starting to pop up, focusing mainly on Hopper the performer. The director’s commitment to in-the-moment feeling and sensation at the expense of plot is an outgrowth of his early schooling as an actor (with Lee Strasberg) and his fascination with still photography. But he wasn’t yet another actor/director recording performances while ignoring the fine points of picture and sound.
Dennis Hopper was already in his 30s when he shot to fame as director and star of Easy Rider, in which he and his friend Peter Fonda played a couple of stoned bikers on a quest for the real America. After many years as a Hollywood actor, he was suddenly the man of the moment, an icon for the young generation of hippies and freaks. Largely unseen for decades, the recently restored 1971 film The American Dreamer catches Hopper at this crucial juncture, holed up in his compound in Taos, New Mexico and putting the finishing touches on his experimental western The Last Movie, destined to be as big.
THE AMERICAN DREAMER examines Dennis Hopper at his wildest and most creative period: in the wake of his famed directorial debut, Easy Rider and completing his follow-up opus The Last Movie. Lawrence Schiller, .
