a picture is worth a thousand words

Dennis Hopper: one (148) great (129) movie (128) man (108)

As a tribute to Dennis Lee Hopper, probably the best ‘bad guy’ in the cinema ever. After a hard battle against a prostate cancer he passed away on May 29.

Easy Rider, Apocalypse Now, Blue Velvet, Speed… the list of movies is endless.

Yes I know… there were a lot of trouble in his life but he was one of the few free spirits out there.

For this image I took about one thousand comments that people left after his death from this site and counted the most commonly used words. I find it quite interesting that the first most used words are ‘one’, ‘great’, ‘movie’, ‘man’. So I will use them as the image title.

The first most used words:

rip (183), one (148), great (129), movie (128), man (108), easy (100), like (97), actor (94), rider (91), missed (89), now (82), film (80), just (78), blue (76), loved (72), rest (72), time (70), always (67), peace (66), mr (62), many (61), thanks (61), go (58), good (58), life (57), velvet (53), favorite (50), true (50), say (49), lived (47), see (47), work (47), really (43), remember (43), role (43), die (42), apocalypse (41), think (41), know (40), years (40), well (39), can (38), never (38), best (37), get (37), come (36), scene (34), way (34), friends (33), watch (33), much (32), sad (32), ever (31), look (31), made (31), art (30), last (30), another (29), day (29), may (29), guy (28), talent (28), things (28), character (27), hollywood (27), long (27), people (27), cool (26), romance (26), two (26), bad (25), gary (25), played (25), want (25), cancer (24), even (24), fan (24), first (24), hoosiers (24), make (24), person (24), saw (24), still (24), back (23), performance (23), right (23), seems (23), ‘s (22), coleman (22), enjoyed (22), got (22), hard (22), hope (22), oh (22), show (22), wild (22), generation (21), part (21), thought (21), threes (21), also (20), moment (20), something (20), take (20), wonder (20), classic (19), family (19), gone (19), kind (19), knew (19), lot (19), star (19), week (19), world (19), brilliant (18), career (18), crazy (18), death (18), frank (18), old (18), rebel (18), seen (18), walken (18), word (18), ago (17), next (17), real (17), river (17), someone (17), today (17), turn (17), end (16), memories (16), start (16), sure (16), amazing (15), better (15), dead (15), flow (15), greatest (15), heart (15), news (15), nice (15), ride (15), sorry (15), acting (14), appearance (14), born (14), came (14), damn (14), dean (14), dude (14), entertainment (14), forget (14), giant (14), god (14), interesting (14), left (14), pabst (14), pretty (14), ribbon (14), truly (14), walk (14), without (14), yes (14), young (14), agree (13), around (13), booth (13), cause (13), conservative (13), course (13), drugs (13), every (13), happens (13), kids (13), legend (13), lost (13), mention (13), nicholson (13), story (13), trying (13), wow (13), american (12), believe (12), billy (12), christopher (12), edge (12), era (12), especially (12), find (12), linkletter (12), mean (12), original (12), post (12), said (12), side (12), speed (12), went (12), wish (12), almost (11), beautiful (11), feel (11), follow (11), free (11), gave (11), icon (11), little (11), loss (11)…
