Wonderful, cool tribute to a highly gifted writer/director/actor/artist/photographer, who was able to stand outside Hollywood yet build a fine career. Great that it's a lot of his friends talking about the old days; they were first hand stories of what made Dennis Hopper tick. How much better can you get than that? This film got around the more boring details by being chronological yet inventive about showcasing who he really was. I loved his recitations, so glad they included those. I appreciated all the little details that came to light here. I came of age in the 60s, was influenced by Easy Rider, and always thought Hopper was the coolest guy on the planet. Then he had a whole other career after he got sober, so was twice as cool. He was the embodiment of hip (well, minus a bit of the white powder) in so many ways. Too bad he had his demons but don't we all, in some fashion, anyway. And I guess they were necessary for his later growth, or something. Dennis was rock 'n roll back when rock was rock, and dangerous, and he kept living his life and art that way, to the end, always going that one frame more, even when sober. The film got that right.
