OUT OF THE BLUE

    Part of Weekend Classics and Music City Mondays.

    Dennis Hopper’s brilliant punk rock masterpiece of adolescent rebellion — largely unavailable for years and a kind of spiritual sequel (and cautionary counterpoint) to Hopper’s EASY RIDER — chronicles the idealism of the 1960s decline into the hazy nihilism of the 1980s and returns to theaters in a new 4K restoration. 

    Don Barnes (Dennis Hopper) is a truck driver in prison for drunkenly smashing his rig into a school bus. Linda Manz (DAYS OF HEAVEN) plays Cebe, his daughter, a teen rebel obsessed with Elvis and the Sex Pistols. Her mother (Sharon Farrell) waitresses, shoots up drugs, and takes refuge in the arms of other men. Cebe runs away to Vancouver’s punk scene and ends up on probation under the care of psychiatrist Raymond Burr. After Don’s release, the family struggles to reconnect before the revelation of dark secrets leads to a harrowing conclusion.

    “A haunting portrait of juvenile delinquency that ranks among the most powerful in American cinema.” —Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader

    “A genuinely alarming miasma of misplaced sexuality and rock 'n' roll fetishism.” —J Hoberman, Village Voice

    “Hopper's characters are in the realm of the irreparable; if the fervent acting occasionally overheats, the reckless emotions nonetheless convey the authentic struggle of personal experience.” —Richard Brody, New Yorker
