RIVER'S EDGE
1986, Park Circus/MGM, 99 min, USA, Dir: Tim Hunter

Director Tim Hunter and writer Neal Jimenez’s tale of disaffected teens, who are tainted by either knowledge or complicity in a young girl’s murder, hits as hard today as it did 30 years ago. A smart, literate, fearless movie chock-full of amazing performances, from conscience-stricken Keanu Reeves, to visibly damaged psychotic adult Dennis Hopper, to crazed and mesmerizing Crispin Glover, to the heart of the picture, a dull-eyed, empty-headed "Samson" of a man played by Daniel Roebuck.


What Is It?
2005, Volcanic Eruptions, 72 min, USA, Dir: Crispin Hellion Glover & David Brothers

Veteran actor Crispin Hellion Glover describes his directorial debut as “the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are snails, salt, a pipe and how to get home, as tormented by an hubristic racist inner psyche." Part one of the “IT” trilogy, the film features a cast largely comprised of actors with Down Syndrome, with Glover appearing as the young man's inner psyche and actress Fairuza Balk voicing one of the snails. “It's like Fellini on psychedelics - wildly creative but completely twisted." - Jane Ganahl, San Francisco Examiner.
