My all-time favorite Dennis Hopper imprint, on the occasion of his passing earlier today: “You can’t travel in space, you can’t go out into space, you know, without, like, you know, with fractions, man. What are you going to land on — one-quarter, three-eighths? What are you going to do when you go from here to Venus or something? That’s dialectic physics. You either love somebody or you hate ’em.”
I’ve written a few short Hopper articles in recent months: (a) a 10.14.08 riff called “Man of Moods“; (b) a 3.27.10 post called “Thousand Yard Stare“; and (c) a 4.13.10 jotting called “Best-Yet Hopper Tribute.”
And once again, here’s that beautifully cut, perfectly on-target video essay from Moving Image Source‘s Matt Zoller Seitz.
