Heart attacks, extreme weight loss, going excessively over-budget, suicide attempts, Dennis Hopper getting a 14 year old Laurence Fishburne hooked on heroin, cast/crew dropping acid and getting drunk/stoned frequently while shooting, freak storms destroying sets... the list goes on. There will never be another film like it. It's an odd film to rank amongst directorial efforts because there was no clear distinction between a good and a bad directorial decision on this film.
