Dennis Hopper
Director, The Last Movie (1971)
Everywhere we sniff Hopperís overwhelming egotism.
(Paul D. Zimmerman, Newsweek)
My mind had a good deal of trouble tolerating the inflated pretensions of Dennis Hopper, who, itís now apparent, is gifted with all the insights of a weekend mystic who drives to and from his retreat in a Jaguar.
(Vincent Canby, New York Times)
Gaseous and overblown mess. I hope that The Last Movie fails very badly and that itís difficult for Dennis Hopper to get another picture.
(Stanley Kauffmann, New Republic)
Inchoate, amateurish, self-indulgent, tedious superficial, unfocused... dismally disappointing and depressing.
(Charles Champlin, Los Angeles Times)
The work of a kid playing with a toy.
(Joseph Gelmis, Newsday)
Actor, Blue Velvet (1986)
Hopper comes on like one of Heinrich Himmler's Oberstrumbannfuehrers in country-western drag; and the main technical problem with the scene must have been to keep his droplets of saliva off the lens of the camera.
(Stephen Hunter, Baltimore Sun)
King of the wackos Dennis Hopper finally goes as berserk on screen as his reputation indicates offscreen. He holds the record in this one for saying the most F-words in movie history.
(Rex Reed, New York Post)
Actor, Blackout (1997)
A truly dismal melodrama with movie star Modine crumbling under drugs and drink and Hopper overacting appallingly even by his hammy standards.
(Alan Frank, Video Home Entertainment)
