Out of the Blue
Dennis Hopper stars and directs in this film about a 15-year-old girl with a troubled upbringing.
Dir Dennis Hopper
With Linda Manz, Dennis Hopper, Sharon Farrell, Raymond Burr
Where Hopper’s Easy Rider captured the thwarted promise of the 60s, his unvarnished third feature channelled the raw power of punk to lay bare the realities faced by many at the dawn of Reagan’s presidency. Events are seen through the eyes of 15-year-old Cebe (a sensational Linda Manz), living in nowheresville and abandoned by everyone from Elvis and Sid Vicious to her junkie mother (Farrell) and drunk, abusive father (Hopper).
