River Phoenix's last film is finally making its way to the United States. Dark Blood will get its North American premiere during the Miami International Film Festival this March. It was previously screened for the first time at the Netherlands Film Festival last September. Helmed by Dutch director George Sluizer, the movie stars Phoenix as a young widower and drifter named Boy who lives as a hermit on a nuclear testing site. He subsequently comes to the aid of a couple (Jonathan Pryce and Judy Davis) whose car breaks down in the desert and eventually takes them as his prisoners. Dark Blood was 80 percent complete when Phoenix passed away in October 1993, and the uncompleted film disappeared into a vault. »
