Directed in 1980 by Dennis Hopper, this profoundly disturbing and inexplicably overlooked masterpiece, is considered the greatest accomplishment of Hopper as a director and the ultimate film about the punk rock era. Taking its title from the Neil Young song My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue) the film centers on Cebe, a rebellious teenager (unforgettably played by Linda Manz), obsessed with Elvis Presley and punk rock music; her ex-convict father Don Barnes (played by Dennis Hopper in one of his wildest performances ever); and her drug addict mother Kathy (played by Sharon Farrell). Out of the Blue competed for the Palme d’Or at the 1980 Cannes Film Festival and caused a great sensation, but having an unsuccessful distribution, the film remained nearly forgotten. Today Out of the Blue is still a little-known cult film and an absolute wonder.
