Joe Queenan Again: With Mention of Dennis Hopper
Fik's comment in an older older chickenbutt post (the one about beer butt chicken) reminded me of this:
[Keanu] Reeves, who is generally generous toward other actors, is still especially impressed by Crispin Glover's performance in River's Edge, one regarded by many critics as the definition of "over the top." For those who have not seen the film, suffice it to say that River's Edge is the only motion picture in recent memory in which Dennis Hopper gives the second weirdest performance.
Photo yoinked from Top 25 Oscar Snubs by Ms. HodgePodge who apparently yoinked it from EW.
River's Edge is an interesting film...underrated, IMHO. Keanu Reeves' role is actually a similar role to Bill of Bill & Ted, if it were a drama instead of a comedy and Bill was a marginally working class teenage doofus instead of an upper-middle class teenage doofus.
