Out of the Blue
DIRECTOR: DENNIS HOPPER
CAST: LINDA MANZ, DENNIS HOPPER, SHARON FARRELL
“Subvert normality… Destroy… Kill all hippies.” Unlikely star and bantamweight teen tough cookie Linda Manz stars as Cebe, a punkette whose disastrous home life only gets more complicated when her ex-truck driver dad (Hopper, also returning to the director’s chair with swagger) gets sprung out of the can and comes home, dragging repressed memories back with him. A clear and profound influence on nearly all “everyone knows this is nowhere” indie films of the decade to follow, but still unrivaled as a cinematic kick in the teeth.
