Fans of the late River Phoenix might be surprised to learn that the last movie he made is about to be released. River famously and tragically overdosed 19 years ago outside Johnny Depp’s Viper Room at the age of 23. The movie he had been filming, “Dark Blood,” was 80% finished. The Dutch director, George Sluizer, who is now 80, finally pulled the movie together with voice-overs to fill in the blanks. It’s described as the story of a young widower (Phoenix) who exiles himself to the desert where he encounters two Hollywood actors (Judy Davis and Jonathan Pryce) on a romantic getaway. Variety praised River’s performance in the movie, which debuted at the Netherlands Film Festival in September.
