Too Cool For School

Dennis Hopper was one of the early believers in West Coast Pop Art and now you can watch how it all unfolded in the Venice Beach 1960’s with the artsy surfy doc, The Cool School. Narrated by Jeff Bridges, the film takes you back inside the lives of once struggling painters/beach bums turned famous artists, Ed Ruscha, Ed Kienholz, and Billy Al Bengston — as well as the rise and fall of the legendary Ferus Gallery.
