Dennis Hopper: List of Movies, Films and TV Shows

  • True Romance (1993) True Romance (1993) | DVD | (15/05/2000) from £4.15  |  Saving you £8.84 (68.10%)  |  RRP £12.99

    It was directed with energetic skill by Top Gun Tony Scott, but t his breathtaking 1993 thriller (think of it as an adolescent crime fantasy on steroids) has Quentin Tarantino written all over it. True Romance is really part of a loose trilogy that includes Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, with a crackling Tarantino screenplay that rides a fine line between raucous comedy and violent excess. Christian Slater plays Clarence, the comic-book lover who meets a beguiling prostitute named Alabama (Patricia Arquette), confronts her vicious pimp (Gary Oldman), and embarks on a cross-country odyssey with $5 million worth of Mafia cocaine. Mayhem ensues, culminating in a favourite Tarantino climax--the "Mexican standoff"--in which a roomful of guys are pointing guns at each other, waiting to see who shoots first. Brutal, profane, and totally outrageous, True Romance is not for everyone, but with a supporting cast that includes Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken, Brad Pitt, and Val Kilmer (as the ghost of Elvis!), you can be sure this movie will never be boring. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

  • Cool Hand Luke [1967] Cool Hand Luke | DVD | (15/09/2008) from £4.99  |  Saving you £15.00 (75.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    His crime: nonconformity. His sentence: the chain gang. Now you can own the Director's Cut of the 1967 classic Cool Hand Luke in which Paul Newman plays one of his best-loved roles as the loner who won't or can't conform to the arbitrary rules of his captivity. A cast of fine character actors including George Kennedy in his Academy Award-winning role of Dragline gives Newman solid support as fellow prisoners. And Strother Martin is the Captain who taunts Luke with the famous line '""What we've got here is...failure to communicate."" No failure here. With rich humour and vibrant storytelling power 'Cool Hand Luke' succeeds resoundingly.

  • Easy Rider [1969] Easy Rider | DVD | (10/01/2000) from £4.45  |  Saving you £15.50 (77.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    This box-office hit from 1969 is an important pioneer of the American independent cinema movement, and a generational touchstone to boot. Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper play hippie motorcyclists crossing the Southwest and encountering a crazy quilt of good and bad people. Jack Nicholson turns up in a significant role as an attorney who joins their quest for awhile and articulates society's problem with freedom as Fonda's and Hopper's characters embody it. Hopper directed, essentially bringing the no-frills filmmaking methods of legendary, drive-in movie producer Roger Corman (The Little Shop of Horrors) to a serious feature for the mainstream. The film can't help but look a bit dated now (a psychedelic sequence toward the end particularly doesn't hold up well) but it retains its original power, sense of daring and epochal impact. -- Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

  • Apocalypse Now [DVD] Apocalypse Now | DVD | (09/01/2012) from £6.59  |  Saving you £9.40 (58.80%)  |  RRP £15.99

    ? The Timeless Epic from Francis Ford Coppola ? In a pristine new transfer supervised by Francis Ford Coppola ? Presented in the original (2.35:1) theatrical aspect ratioOne of the most iconic films ever made and one of the most disturbing dramatisations of the Vietnam War ever seen, Francis Ford Coppola?s Apocalypse Now is cinema at its most epic and unforgettable. Traumatised soldier Captain Benjamin L. Willard has been chosen for a highly classified mission. He must journey along the notorious Nung river and into the savage depths of war torn Cambodia in search of the mysterious Colonel Kurtz. Deemed insane and a danger to the war effort, Kurtz must be terminated with extreme prejudice. But the closer he gets to Kurtz the closer he gets to his own heart of darkness.

  • Out Of The Blue [1982] Out Of The Blue | DVD | (04/03/2002) from £9.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Part of the gritty, punk-inspired wave of US independent cinema of the early 1980s, Out of the Blue is a bleak, harrowing drama. Essentially the vision of actor and director Dennis Hopper, the film finds the man behind the sepia-tinged soul searching of Easy Rider at a far lower ebb, in terms of the tone of the film and his own character, Donny. The undoubted star of the movie, however, is Linda Manz, who plays the troubled 15-year-old CB, a troubled teenage girl on the brink of adulthood. Waiting for Donny to return from a jail sentence for manslaughter, CB is living with her drug-addicted mother and seeking solace in the Sex Pistols and Elvis Presley. The events that unfold on Donny's return are often unbearably grim (the final scenes are practically unwatchable) but produce a movie that is worthy of its hallowed status. Hopper in particular is an uncomfortable sight, made all the more unsettling by the knowledge that it is hard to tell where his character ends and he begins. It's hard work, but more than worth the effort. On the DVD: for its first release on DVD much effort has been made to give Out of the Blue the treatment it deserves. The enhanced visuals are excellent, focusing on Hopper's inspired direction. The audio soundtrack is available in Dolby Digital sound, particularly effective on the recurring use of Neil Young's fragile "Hey, Hey, My, My (Out of the Blue)", the song which gave the movie its title. Hopper's audio commentary is fascinating and reflects his dedication to the project, a film that he practically rewrote on set after stepping in to replace the original director. The movie's place in both Hopper's career and alongside works such as Repo Man and Driller Killer is also examined in an excellent 12-page booklet. --Phil Udell

  • The American Friend (Blu-ray) The American Friend (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (22/10/2018) from £17.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

  • Rumble Fish [Masters of Cinema] (Blu-ray) [1983] Rumble Fish (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (27/08/2012) from £7.59  |  Saving you £7.40 (49.40%)  |  RRP £14.99

    The second of Francis Ford Coppola's films based on the popular juvenile novels of S.E. Hinton (the first being The Outsiders), Rumble Fish split critics into opposite camps: those who admired the film for its heavily stylised indulgence, and those who hated it for the very same reason. Whatever the response, it's clearly the work of a maverick director who isn't afraid to push the limits of his innovative talent. Filmed almost entirely in black and white with an occasional dash of color for symbolic effect, this tale of alienated youth centers on gang leader Rusty James (Matt Dillon) and his band of punk pals. Rusty's got a girlfriend (Diane Lane), an older brother named Motorcycle Boy (Mickey Rourke), and a drunken father (Dennis Hopper) who've all given up trying to straighten him out. He's best at making trouble, and he pursues that skill with an enthusiastic flair that eventually catches up with him. But it's not the whacked-out story here that matters--it's the uninhibited verve of Coppola's visual approach, which includes everything from time-lapse clouds to the kind of smoky streets and alleyways that could only exist in the movies. The supporting cast includes a host of fresh faces who went on to thriving careers, including Nicolas Cage, Christopher Penn, Vincent Spano, Laurence Fishburne, and musician Tom Waits. --Jeff Shannon

  • One Giant Leap [2000] One Giant Leap | DVD | (23/09/2002) from £9.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £19.99

    1 Giant Leap is a unique project devised by Duncan Bridgeman and Jamie Catto (formerly of Faithless). It's a DVD accompaniment to an album that "fuses spoken word, musicians, sound, rhythms and images from all around the world". Subdivided into themes including "God: Blasphemy", "Inspiration", "Death" and "Happy", its aim is to explore and discover the "unity in diversity" and to this end, they profess to have assembled the "most happening musicians, authors, scientists and thinkers we could find" to offer their own thoughts interspersed with a river of eclectic ambient and world music along with images captured on their global travels. While the list of contributors does include Kurt Vonnegut and Brian Eno, whose contribution regarding olive trees is typically apposite and perfectly formed, one might wonder if the likes of Big Brother presenter Davina McCall and an ex-porn star really represent the vanguard of global thinking. The musical contributors include some artists seemingly past their sell-by date, such as Eddie Reader and Neneh Cherry, while the participation of Robbie Williams might make some groan. Furthermore, this sort of audio-visual imagery runs the danger of resembling the language of modern advertising, with its soothing, pan-global blandishments used to promote multinational industry. And yet, for all one's doubts, this project really does work. So often, ethnic music is drowned in bland, new-age "muzak" to make it palatable to Western ears. Here, it is heightened. A free-thinking, free-flowing context is provided in which all shine, including Michael Stipe and even Williams himself. This is a laudable project that demonstrates the possibility of working in margins unspoiled by commercialism is still alive. On the DVD: 1 Giant Leap on disc includes an accompanying booklet, amply packed with text and illustration. The 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound is particularly robust and bass-heavy. Extras include videos for the two singles, "Braided Hair" featuring Arrested Development's Speech and Neneh Cherry, and "My Culture", featuring Faithless's Maxi Jazz, both of which encapsulate the musical and ideological themes of the project as a whole. --David Stubbs

  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 [Blu-ray] The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 | Blu Ray | (21/08/2017) from £10.09  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    Opinion is mixed as to whether Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 is a worthy successor to Tobe Hooper's seminal slasher flick. The story picks up 14 years after the events of the first film, which have long since passed into local legend. On a relentless search for the maniacs who murdered his wheelchair-bound nephew Franklin, Lieutenant "Lefty" Enright (Dennis Hopper) is drawn to the scene of a brutal roadside killing in Red River, Texas. He soon forms an alliance with Stretch (Caroline Williams), a feisty female radio DJ who inadvertently broadcasts the chainsaw murder of two drunken frat boys live on her late-night phone-in request show. At Lefty's request she replays the tape on air and soon after receives a terrifying visit from two deranged fans, Leatherface and Chop Top, who are intent on killing her. Stretch escapes, and together with Lefty follows the trail of the gruesome twosome into the bowels of the deserted San Jacinto historical theme park, which hides a Leatherface house of horrors. In contrast to the chilling, snuff movie scenario of the original, Hooper whoops it up with this 1986 sequel brimming with gruesome humour, without welching on the thrills. Writer LM Kit Carson (Paris, Texas) reworks Leatherface into a tragic, almost naïve figure trapped beneath a horrific façade and fleshes out his thoroughly dysfunctional family with the introduction of baby brother ChopTop--a steel-plated Vietnam vet. Leatherface's old man (now called Drayton Sawyer) and Grandpa are carried over from the first film. Dennis Hopper is clean cut but dead-eyed in a typically manic performance as the cowboy detective driven by revenge--think of an embryonic Frank Booth from Blue Velvet with a fetish for power tools. TCM2 is a wildly imaginative experiment in terror that stays true to its trashy exploitation roots. On the DVD: The lack of extra features on this disc (apart from the standard theatrical trailer) is a major oversight given that TCM2 has had no previous theatrical or video release in the UK. A director's commentary would have been especially welcome, as well as the addition of the deleted scenes featured on the US laserdisc and special edition VHS versions of this film. Static menus provide options to watch the film with English, Spanish or Italian dialogue and subtitles in Danish, Norweigian and Swedish. The main feature is of more than adequate picture quality and presented in 16:9 anamorphic format. --Chris Campion

    This box-office hit from 1969 is an important pioneer of the American independent cinema movement, and a generational touchstone to boot. Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper play hippie motorcyclists crossing the Southwest and encountering a crazy quilt of good and bad people. Jack Nicholson turns up in a significant role as an attorney who joins their quest for awhile and articulates society's problem with freedom as Fonda's and Hopper's characters embody it. Hopper directed, essentially bringing the no-frills filmmaking methods of legendary, drive-in movie producer Roger Corman (The Little Shop of Horrors) to a serious feature for the mainstream.
