Glover is so good in this...

Chilling. You sort of forget who Hopper was and why Keaneau hasn't become more acclaimed.

That was Hopper's follow up to BLUE VELVET when he was making his comeback.

Off-topic and apropos of nuthin', since I don't get to initiate threads:


I thought I was good at this, but day-amn. Something to warm us all on an are-you-kidding winter day.

Love this film. I saw it one night at my local theater, not knowing much about it except that it was about teenagers, Dennis Hopper was in it and Time magazine had given it a positive, full-page review. I think we were all kind of stunned.

I know the soundtrack was mostly metal and a couple 50s tunes, but how do you see this film and not think of THIS song:

Looking back, I recall thinking that Keanu Reeves was headed for better things. Well, he was headed for BIGGER things, that's for sure, but he never grew as an actor at all. Too bad.

Also, Ione Skye was all kinds of hot in the late 80s, huh?

[9] yeah she was. i loved Clarissa!

Feck was great in this (Hopper). yeah, i dug Keanu a lot in this. then again, i also loved Bill & Ted's! : ) keanu's little brother in this was always weird to me. crispin glover played his role very well.

what a great, weird flick. this and the lost boys were my fave movies as a teen...
