River's Edge

One of the best films from the 1980’s American independent cinema scene, the story centers around a group of friends, including such future superstars as Keanu Reeves, Crispin Glover, and Ione Skye (what a babe!), whose lives change when they find out one of them is a murderer. Samson, the big guy of the group, rapes and murders his girlfriend Jamie. He shows the body to his friends and brags about the killing. This sets in motion a chain of events that will change the course of all the characters, with Layne (Glover) trying to protect his friend Samson, and Matt (Keanu) who struggles with telling the police or keeping it quiet. The acting is what makes the movie, even Keanu does well considering he’s one of the world’s worst actors. But the man who really shines through is Dennis Hopper as Feck, a drug dealer and paranoid nutbag who is assuring everyone that he’s killed before. Definitely not to be missed.
