- OUT OF THE BLUE (1980)
Directed by Dennis Hopper
Containing: Linda Manz, Dennis Hopper & Raymond Burr
THIS EXTREMELY RARE SCREENING IS FROM A NEWLY STRUCK 35MM PRINT!
Perhaps the most honest and cynical takes on the early 1980s, Dennis Hopper's third directorial effort horrifyingly captures the grimy grit of growing up in the punk era. One-of-kind actor Linda Manz (star of Terrence Malick's DAYS OF HEAVEN) delivers her crowning achievement as an abused young girl who turns to obsessing about Elvis and Johnny Rotten just to get through it all. With Neil Young singing the title song DO NOT MISS this newly struck 35mm print of this obscure treasure. You will truly never forget this movie. Preceded by other punk-era trailers. 94min.
