Not What I Expected
18 July 2018 | by hamlakelocheSee all my reviews

I don't watch a lot of documentaries, but that might change after seeing this one. I knew going in that it was about Dennis Hopper, and didn't know anything other than that. I thought that was all I needed to know. But it's not a typical interview documentary where they talk to some people, have some narration, then repeat it all over again. This is engaging and entertaining. It tells a story and uses techniques that I have not previously seen in documentaries, but which seem obvious in retrospect. I appreciated what I saw, and I recommend this film to anyone who even has a mild interest in Dennis Hopper, or even if you just have a couple hours to kill.
