Das Messer am Ufer: Directed by Tim Hunter. With Crispin Glover, Keanu Reeves, Ione Skye, Daniel Roebuck. A high school slacker commits a shocking act and proceeds to let his friends in on the secret. However, the friends’ reaction is almost as ambiguous and perplexing as the crime itself.
“Not to take away from anyone else, especially the writer Jimenez and the director Hunter, and the high school teacher and a lot of other people that make this movie really good, but I have to say I found Daniel Roebucku0026#39;s performance completely riveting. He should have been nominated for it. Heu0026#39;s big and brutal but also young and self-pitying and yet careless about his own fate. Those gestures, the tossing of beer cans and breaking into the ammo shop. Really well done.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThat scene w/Hopper and the doll by the riverbank was one of the better moments of cinema Iu0026#39;ve seen in a long, long time. Why was this movie so under the radar compared to other 80u0026#39;s movies? Thatu0026#39;s what I want someone on this board to answer. The critics kind of mystify me, I guess. I agree with a lot of the postings here that this movie is underrated. Buy why?”
