Plot – Spoilers:
Samson strangles his girlfriend and leaves her body by the river. He then brags about it to his friends at school and takes them to the new tourist spot. The friends aren’t sure how to react and spend the next few days confused about their feelings and mostly quiet. One of them though is hot on the situation and as the self-appointed leader of the group, takes it upon himself to bundle Samson away from the law.

River’s Edge is a quiet and powerful portrayal of shared numbness among disparate, yet interesting characters. There’s Feck, the one-legged local dealer who kills his loneliness with a blowup doll. He carries intimidating stories from his past, but feels inadequate in the presence of Samson’s boisterous psychopathy. In Tim, there’s the searing resentment of a kid’s ambitious growth hormones stunted by the body they’re festering in. And of course, Layne – memorably played by Crispin Glover – who thinks he’s part of some kind of novel or movie.

In River’s Edge, the adults are obsessed with why the kids aren’t reacting the way they would. What gets everyone is the lack of obviously-displayed empathy, which is probably something users of this site would identify with – now, or from a past phase.

    Entertaining enough.. But.. some really bad acting.. poor use of music in spots.. seems poorly made in ways. Crispy Glover acts basically like he dis as Mcfly… apparently that’s how he always acts? The same weird expressive way he talks and even moves

    This is amazing, but mainly when Keanu says “All you do is eat our food and fuck our mom!”.. A classic!

      # Valkyrie Matisse, I saw it when it first came out on VHS, it was ok but, meh, forgettable. The only good thing about it was Dennis Hopper, he is an awesome actor, loved him in ”Blue Velvet”, a classic performance in one of my favourite films. Classic and favourite just as you are. Zedxx.
