OUT OF THE BLUE: 4K RESTORATION d. Dennis Hopper, 1980 presented by Deeper Into Movies at Moth Club (06 DEC 19:30 – FREE!).

  • “Unlikely star and bantamweight teen tough cookie Linda Manz gives one of the greatest adolescent performances in cinema as Cebe, a punkette whose disastrous home life only gets more complicated when her ex-truck driver dad (Dennis Hopper, returning to the director’s chair with swagger after a decade in movie jail) gets sprung out of the can and comes home, dragging bad habits and repressed memories back with him. A cinematic kick in the teeth set against the backdrop of ass-end-of-nowhere small town Pacific Northwest that’s something like Robert Bresson’s MOUCHETTE (1967) under the influence of the Sex Pistols, and a magnificent showcase for DAYS OF HEAVEN (1978) star Manz, who died in 2020, but can never be forgotten for the naked feral fury of her performance here.”
