| River s Edge Needs Coco Chanel s Best Advice Given that he s a guy who takes a lot of abuse and a guy almost everyone will gamely impersonate if given the chance, Keanu Reeves has had a much more interesting career than you d think. In fact, if you look at his resume, he s bounced around from genre to genre as much as almost any actor you re going to encounter. He s done action movies (Point Break, Speed, obviously The Matrix), he s done overwrought dramas (The Devil s Advocate), he s done romantic melodrama (Sweet November, The Lake House, A Walk In The Clouds), he s done highly respectable award winners (Dangerous Liaisons, My Own Private Idaho), he s done Shakespeare (Much Ado About Nothing), he s done goofball farce (Bill Ted s Excellent Adventure), he s done light romantic comedy (The Replacements), and he s done middlebrow crowd pleasing comedy (Parenthood, Something red air max s Gotta Give). He s actually kind of a fascinating guy, even if I m as fond as anyone of yelling, "Cans! There was no baby! It was full of cans!" (Thank you, thank you.) (See here, starting at about the 6:20 mark, for the original.) And the first movie where people really talked about him was River s Edge, which won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Film in 1987, beating out not only The Big Easy starring Dennis Quaid, but also John Sayles Matewan. In fact, it s appropriate that this is the movie Crispin Glover was promoting when he made his famous apparently unhinged appearance on what was then Late Night With David Letterman on NBC, because "unhinged" doesn t even begin to describe it. A kick in the head, advice from a fashion genius, why Dennis Hopper didn t need a blow up doll, and more, after the jump. The basic idea of the movie is an interesting (if horrifying) one: Several high school friends learn that their buddy John (Daniel Roebuck, who played Arzt on Lost) has killed his girlfriend and left nike free run 4.0 womens her nude body on a riverbank. In fact, they all go down there and have a look. But at first, nobody calls the police. Paralyzed by an odd combination of fear, loyalty, and a lack of interest in getting mixed up in it, they look at her body and then walk away and leave it there. There s certainly an interesting thought here, and the potential to look at the odd social dynamics of high school, the panicky way people react to situations for which they nike free run red are completely unprepared, desensitization to violence, and so forth. Movies would often be wise to take exactly the same step, except that in the case of River s Edge, they would have had to take off not one thing but about ten or fifteen affectations that only serve to distract from that interesting little nut of a story. The most obvious is Glover s performance as the group s "leader" Layne, which is best understood as a mashup of the way he played George McFly in Back To The Future and the way he behaved with David Letterman. Yes, he s supposed to be a speed addict, but every line reading is so hyper and he s chewing on every word so hard that the theater fills with giggles. The performance is a perfect example of the difference between the best acting and the most acting; he s certainly working hard enough, but it looks ridiculous. You can see for yourself in this clip (caution: language). It s tempting to say the acting is terrible, except that he s clearly doing it on purpose. He means it to be exactly like that, and whether you like it or not, that s the characterization he s chosen for Layne, who I would stress is in a movie not meant to be a comedy, much as that clip may lead you to believe otherwise. So it s not inept acting so much as a huge miscalculation on everyone s part. The second problem is the character of Feck, played by Dennis Hopper. Feck is the local pot supplier and Layne s pal, and here are his notable qualities: (1) He socializes with a blow up doll. (2) He has only one leg. (3) He plays the saxophone. (4) He once killed a woman. It is way, way too much, even for Dennis Hopper. Either the blow up doll or the artificial leg on the reclusive drug source; not both. To return to Chanel, that s not merely a shiny brooch and a shiny pendant; that s stacking two hats on your head. As if that isn t enough, Reeves character, Matt, has a twelve year old brother who appears to be possibly the most disturbed person in the nike free run 2 mens movie and at one point winds up stalking Matt with a gun for reasons only tangentially related to the rest of the story (but, of course, designed to drive home even harder the theme of misdirected, violent, cold hearted youth). There s an effort here to say something serious about violence and alienation and perhaps the smoking a lot of marijuana, but it s all so excessive, and there are so many diversions of the audience s attention, that the basic horror of the situation which shouldn t need adornment unless you re inadequately horrified nike free shipping code by the simple fact of a body remaining on a riverbank while no one does anything is undermined.
