Out of the Blue

Out of the Blue. Dennis Hopper. 1980. ⚄

[half an hour passes]

Wow. I don’t know what I was expecting, but it wasn’t this.

It’s such an odd movie. It’s got these improvised scenes, and these little bits where the extras go “is that a cut?”, and this inchoate storyline… Was Hopper on drugs? I mean, what drugs was Hopper on? Whatever it was, he should do more of those! This is great!

Lovely use of music, too. Most prominently Out of the Blue (and into the black), of course, but all this cool (and not) music.

OK, it’s a bit on the nose here and there.

Wha

wha

what the fuck.

Well!

That was pretty gruelling. I don’t even want to say anything about it other than …

wat.
