I’m going to miss his incredible and crazy acting skills.
Those who doubt about his acting skills should see “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2”, even if the movie isn’t that good, the acting of Hopper is just oustanding.
A great creative genius ! I’m glad I discovered all his artistic talents in the retrospective at La Cinémathèque in 2008… A great actor, director but also a great photographer and a great painter… A great man, a free man.
R.I.P. and respect.
My cinematic heart is broken.
One of the greats, you shall be missed sir. RIP
His final act of greatness: completely overshadowing Gary Coleman’s death in the media.
Re: my comment.
In the context of his persona. He didn’t suffer fools gladly. Nor should he. Which meant not everyone was his friend.
He will be missed. And we are greatful indeed that he has left us with such a terrific body of work, that will no doubt keep him in our hearts and minds for many more years to come.
Mad Dog Morgan
Super Mario Brothers
just to name a few…..R.I.P.
He was fucking crazy, but in a good way. It contributed to his unique vision. One of those rare celebrities with an actual purpose. Maybe “Out of the Blue” will finally get some love.
I won’t forget his insane performance in Blue Velvet
Rest in peace Dennis Hopper!
“Do you want me to pour it?”
“No, I want you to fuck it! Shit, yes, pour the fuckin’ beer!”
So much greatness in this epic scene, by everyone involved.
Sigh… Well everybody’s going sooner or later.
Every moment of his performance in Blue Velvet is etched on my memory. He was a really good director too – especially Out of the Blue, Colors and The Hot Spot
Anybody interested in a DVD of THE LAST MOVIE – feel free to contact me.
PABST BLUE RIBBON!!!
I’m glad he got the send-off he deserved with his own Hollywood star, and that he seemed perfectly coherent at the ceremony so he’d appreciate it. With this man for that occasion, coherence wouldn’t have been a guarantee at any other point..
Wherever Dennis Hopper ends up now is going to be a far more interesting place.
RIP Mr hopper
I saw his exhibition a few months ago in Melbourne that included his paintings, photographs and films along with works from other well known artists’ pieces he had collected throughout the years. It made me appreciate him and his work a whole lot more.
It’s just a shame that an artist of his calibre doesn’t get the attention someone like Patrick Swayze got when he passed away…..???
i’m watching easy rider right now
So sorrow. a legend lost. :’(
Dennis Hopper, true American character. We all saw it coming but it’s tough nonetheless. I normally don’t think twice about celebrity deaths, but this one hit me somewhat. Maybe it’s the lack of people like him in movies today, and the fact we lost one instead of gained one.
RIP Dennis Hopper
“I’ll fuck anything that moooooves!”
Nobody else could yell that and make it worth quoting.
@ Tom Mikos – I hear ya when you say you don’t normally feel a sensation when you hear about a celebrity death. Nothing against him, but Gary Coleman would be an example.
Dennis Hopper is absolutely a presence that’s going to be missed, because you knew he was there. He didn’t fade.
Hopper will always be here. That’s the beauty of film.
Tracks is a great Dennis Hopper film, that is sadly unseen by many.
I am still upset about this.
