Crispin Glover, Keanu Reeves, and Ione Skye star in Tim Hunter’s classic of Americana-inflected horror and middle-class disaffection as what Hoberman calls “spawn of a suburban wasteland, a group of post-punk, stoned-out teenagers […] too vacant to register any emotion when one of them rape-murders his girlfriend and leaves her body unburied by the river.” Dennis Hopper also appears, playing a one-legged ex-biker who sells marijuana to the apathetic youths. Controversial at the time of its release, River’s Edge endures as a harrowing, transfixing, nightmarish vision of a generation for whom Reagan’s “Morning in America” was in fact an endless night.
