Official Trailer for ‘Along for the Ride’ Documentary on Dennis Hopper

Along for the Ride Doc Trailer

An official trailer has arrived for a documentary titled Along for the Ride, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year. Along for the Ride profiles the life and career of actor Dennis Hopper, who you will recognize from all kinds of different movies over the years. Hopper passed away in 2010, but earned two Oscar nominations over his long career. “Method actor, filmmaker, photographer, fine artist, art collector, and all-American madman.” The doc includes a score by Gemma Thompson of the critically acclaimed band Savages, along with plenty of interviews with his friends and colleagues including Wim Wenders, Dwight Yoakam, David Lynch, Michael Madsen, Dean Stockwell, and many others. “Through the triumph of Easy Rider, the magnificent career suicide of The Last Movie, the overlooked masterpiece Out of the Blue, and a midlife comeback after plenty of booze and brawling, Along for the Ride is a vivacious work of film biography with a freewheeling style that’s only appropriate to its anarchic subject.” Watch the trailer below. ›››

Critics called their inclusion of one gay character groundbreaking — which it was — but as any unhealthy obsessed fan of the movie knows, the original Beauty and the Beast was rich with queer subtexts and characters (or at least, ones we could dream about).

Listen: the movie came out (hardee-har) in 1991. Few people were openly queer on television, and certainly not in Disney princess movies. And animated tea cups can’t *technically* have hypothetical sexualities, because they’re . . . animated tea cups. Read more…
