R.I.P. Dennis Hopper
One of the most unique screen presences of modern cinema has left us. Dennis Hopper passed away this morning after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 74.
Hopper spent his career giving incredible like to roles in off-beat classics like Easy Rider and Blue Velvet, and remained fearless in his choice of material in a way that limited his star appeal despite a wealth of talent and charisma. He even managed to make Waterworld pretty damn entertaining. They don’t quite make ’em like Dennis Hopper anymore. He will be missed.
