5.0 out of 5 stars
A film that should be given a chance to be liked, 8 May 2013
When I first saw this film I thought it was going to be a typical american teenage angst movie but I was pleasantly surprised to find it was more.
River's Edge deals with a morale dilema of either protecting your friends no matter what or betraying them because you believe its the right thing to do is something that most of us have had to deal with at some point in our life. A decision not easily taken.
The acting was incredibly believable. Dennis Hopper is an actor who I will never tire in watching (very sad that he is no longer around). Keanu Reeves is inspiring as the protagonist. Crispin Glover's defensive stance for his murdering friend verges on the manic and at times I found comical.
It is great to see this gem of a movie has been released on DVD and I beg you to give it a try yourself. You never know you too may become a fan.
