Out of the Blue
Dir. Dennis Hopper (1980).
Death-obsessed, self-absorbed and continually unsettling, a miasma of misplaced sexuality and rocknroll fetishism, Dennis Hoppers most brutal and accomplished movie is a punk sequel to Easy Rider (if only Billy had lived), as well as hallucinatory family drama that employs one of the most florid metaphors for incest since Oepidus plucked out his peepers.
