Dennis Hopper, R.I.P. The two things I remember most about Dennis Hopper are that he was a vocal supporter of Ronald Reagan, and that he couldn't believe he'd gotten an Oscar nomination for Hoosiers rather than Blue Velvet: "Hoosiers? I got it for Hoosiers?" Oh yeah, he also made some movie called Easy Rider. There's a temptation to think that perhaps that's more than Dennis Hopper himself remembers about his life (it's sure more than he remembers about his turn in Apocalypse Now), but his life truly was quite a time. Joe Neumeier offers some thoughts on Hopper's legacy. ◙
