some people think this is great directing, and you can see and feel what they are trying to do, but it is one of the most stupid, depressing, films

(1991) 85% (0%) 3) NYT Critics' Pick * * * * "See my profile for the key to this code" * * * * SYNOPSIS: "A homosexual road movie that espouses the family values of a Disney feature and the pop art sensibilities of a Warhol piece with a dose of Shakespeare added for good measure." CONSENSUS: "A tantalizing glimpse of a talented director and his stars all at the top of their respective games, Gus Van Sant's loose reworking of "Henry IV" is smart, sad and audacious. "My Own Private Idaho" is a cult-American classic that like anything cleverly multi-layered should be surveyed and examined several times in order to fully appreciate how and why this film works as a brilliant piece of art, and entertainment." MOTIVATION FOR ME TO SEE: I have liked the director ever since seeing "To Die For" (1995), and after I recently saw his latest, "Milk", I decided to see what else he's done that I've missed.
