Details: Amazon.ca Dennis Hopper knows how to grab the attention of an audience. In the opening minutes of Out of the Blue, Hopper's hard-drinking truck driver jokes with his daughter before losing control and slamming his truck into a busload of screaming children. With the camera recording the excruciating impact from inside the cab, putting the audience helplessly in the driver's seat, the cinematic whiplash jerks the audience out of any preconceived notions of how this drama will play out. Five years later, daughter Cebe (a brilliant, brooding, angry performance by Linda Manz of Days of Heaven) has grown into a rebellious punk in a backwater town barely looked after by her flighty mom (Sharon Farrell), a well-meaning but childish junkie. When Dad is sprung from jail, Cebe's hopes of a whole, healing family poignantly and painfully prove to be doomed when a spontaneous picnic collapses into bickering and blame. Cebe desperately tries to hold everyone together as the suddenly dutiful child, singing the Elvis tune "Teddy Bear" as if her love and passion will infect her hopelessly self-absorbed parents. The film occasionally lapses into pop psychology observations, but Hopper's loose, naturalistic style and sympathetic yet critical attitude inflects the drama with a painful power that finally erupts in a devastating conclusion. --Sean Axmaker
