Easy Rider (1969)

The classic American road trip with a 60s twist, Easy Rider offers a different kind of scenic driving. Captain America (Peter Fonda) and Billy (Dennis Hopper) take off on their Harleys to see the country and indulge in plenty of rock and roll, drugs, and sex. They pick up stragglers along the way, including Jack Nicholson, who won an Oscar nomination for his role as a boozy lawyer. A great rock soundtrack accompanies this cross-country journey, which reveals both the beauty and ugliness to be found along America's roadside. This classic flick also makes the list for one of the all-time great campfire scenes.
