Jahns breaks down how the Bears progressed through training camp, which ended Sunday, and what lies ahead: The Bears and Roquan Smith will … Come to terms sooner rather than later. They just have to.

By Sal Pizarro | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group August 7, 2018 at 12:10 pm Bay Area film lovers will get a rare treat this weekend when the re-release of Dennis Hopper‘s cult classic, “The Last Movie” — which has gone largely unseen since its brief initial first run in 1971 — has its first West Coast screening at San Jose’s 3Below Theaters. After the runaway success of 1969’s “Easy Rider,” Hopper was given free rein to make the movie about a Western being shot in Peru. Using hours of footage shot in South America, Hopper finally edited together a final cut of the film for a September 1971 release. It won the Critics Prize at the Venice Film Festival that year but was considered a commercial and critical failure after a dismal two-week run in New York City. Hopper became a Hollywood pariah and didn’t direct another movie until 1980. Alejandro Adams, director of Cinema Club Silicon Valley, was able to … [Read more...] about San Jose gets Dennis Hopper’s ‘The Last Movie’ before L.A.
