Out of the Blue

Dennis Hopper directed a film in 1980 called Out of the Blue.

There's a scene where the main character gets drunk while driving a big loader around a dump. Bob Seger is playing in the soundtrack.

A film like this can get to me.

I saw Faces yesterday, and it was hideous. How does cassavetes see the world like that? Ah, that laughter was monstrous.

Hideous? It's such a beautiful, uninhibited, overflowing-with-life worldview. Just live. That's all. It's so strong. There's an honesty there that can be terrifying, but I want to embrace it.

Do you remember that story about dennis hopper premiering 'the last movie' at a university? Then supposedly after it was over some girl punched him in the face because she thought it was that bad.
