one of my top 5 movies...
8 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

when i bought this VHS, just like any other i buy without previous viewing, i didn't let myself have high hopes that this would be another great film to add to my collection. now i know the movie description is definitely just a tease to all the events which unravel throughout this film. i personally think this is one of dennis hopper's greatest works. cebe WAS one of the punkest characters i've seen in a movie and being she was such a young girl she still had the real attitude. not to mention an awesome subhumans flyer in her room! Neil Young's song and all the Elvis were also perfectly situated in the movie.

as to all the taboo + such, while watching this flick it was real life to me. the incestuousness was not drawn out and overly dramatic. it seemed realistic and probably how that happens. i knew it would get weird after the scene where cebe is cuddling her teddy bear + sucking her thumb. creep perverts such as charlie are everywhere in real life. dennis hopper's character, ex-jailed alcoholic, was so convincing and flawless. overall this movie is definitely in my top 5 favorite movies i've ever seen. perfect from start to the bitter end.
