Director Tim Hunter and writer Neal Jimenez’s tale of disaffected teens, who are tainted by either knowledge or complicity in a young girl’s murder, hits as hard today as it did 30 years ago. A smart, literate, fearless movie chock-full of amazing performances, from conscience-stricken Keanu Reeves, to visibly damaged psychotic adult Dennis Hopper, to crazed and mesmerizing Crispin Glover, to the heart of the picture, a dull-eyed, empty-headed “Samson” of a man played by Daniel Roebuck.
