Out of The Blue(1980) along with Easy Rider(1969), and Colors(1987) are Dennis Hopper's best movies as a director. One of the best parts of the film is Linda Manz as CeBe who gives a performance that compares greatly with the most famous rebel of all, James Dean. In one way CeBe could be seen as a relative of Jim Stark from Rebel Without A Cause(1955). Out of The Blue begins where Easy Rider ends as it continues the search for an idealize place. It was a terrific film about the Punk Rock generation as Easy Rider was an interesting movie about the hippie generation.
Out of The Blue is comparable to the 1965 Yukio Mishima novel, The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea. They are both about teens who are angered and disillusioned with the adult world. The two teens both idealize and admire the main male adult of the story. Third, CeBe and Noboru both feel betrayed by their heroes(CeBe's Dad, and the sailer) for not being the person they were expected to be. The ending of this film is one of the most bleakest and nihilistic finalles that I've ever seen.
