An actor, director, screenwriter and photographer, Hopper rose to fame as a countercultural icon in the 1960s and later developed into a character actor noted for inhabiting characters with a dark side. The actor’s intensity will be well displayed in Born to Be Wild: A Dennis Hopper Mini Fest. Here are capsules on the three films:

Blue Velvet (8:00 p.m. October 14):The discovery of a severed human ear found in a field leads a young man on an investigation related to a beautiful, mysterious nightclub singer and a group of criminals who have kidnapped her child.

Hoosiers (4:30 p.m. October 15): Also released in 1986, this is a more conventional and sentimental film than Hopper’s usual, a winning sports movie about a small-town Indiana high school basketball team that competes in the state championships in the 1950s. Hopper plays the alcoholic assistant coach, aiding Gene Hackman’s head coach with a spotty past. Hopper was recognized with an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor.

Easy Rider (7:30 PM on Sunday) A cross-country trip to sell drugs puts two hippie bikers on a collision course with small-town prejudices.
