River Phoenix’s Last Film Debuts at the Berlin Film Festival

River Phoenix’s Last Film Debuts at the Berlin Film Festival:

The late actor River Phoenix was briefly reincarnated for cinema audiences on Thursday when his last film finally had its international premiere at the Berlin film festival, 20 years after his sudden death brought an abrupt end to its production. Phoenix died of a drugs overdose at the age of 23 just 10 days before the completion of Dark Blood, in which he plays a young widower with Native American roots who kidnaps a Hollywood couple.

It’s always bittersweet to me to see the work of a late actor, like a bond (that in truth, doesn’t exist) that has been broken, a conversation that was abruptly ended. Phoenix was a young adroit actor. What a shame.

What do you think?
