Dennis Hopper portrait

Dennis Hopper is one of my favourite actors and had a great impact in the new way of approaching cinema at the rise of independent filmmaking..
in the words of Matthew Hays, no other persona better signified
the lost idealism of the 1960s than that of Dennis Hopper.
He died yesterday due to complications from prostate cancer.
Rest in peace.
