River’s Edge

I remember super liking this movie back in the day, and that it was dark and weird. Well, it’s still dark and weird, and I still quite enjoyed it. The acting is a bit off at times — young Keanu is, well, young, and Crispin Glover over-hams, but in a fun way — but it’s still an interesting take on the teen movie. The most interesting character I think is the little 11-year-old brother, who is so incredibly evil and a jerk, but yet is compelling to watch. I guess 1986 was really the year Dennis Hopper went weird, what with his role here and in Blue Velvet.
