Acting lesson
19 November 1999 | by (wettenberg, germany) – See all my reviews

What basically is a quite good documentary on advertising (a 7, maybe) is turned into a really good acting lesson by the man, Dennis Hopper. Seen a few times sitting on a sofa in a desert in what looks like Australia, he acts as a bridge between chapters. The way he does it has to be seen. As good are these scenes in terms of lighting and directing.
