I was a huge fan after seeing Stand By Me. He became one of the most intriguing figures in Hollywood. River was a clever boy but undereducated. Living with his hippie parents, he had to beg for money at a very young age. His affiliation with Children of God cult might contributed to his latter depressions. Too many eerie details moments before his death, like when Johnny Depp's band P playing a song mentioning River Phoenix, he was just outside the club having seizures.

A recommendes read if you want to learn about Hollywood pop culture in the 80s-90s.
