" "There's usually some of Kubrick in all of my films." "Kubrick was a good model. He had an autonomy I've never had but that one desire. He organized things a certain way. And he had a good relationship with Warner Brothers. He was their class act.""

IMDb - 20 :The Top Directors of the Last 20 Years (25 person items)

"Good Will Hunting “ Speaking of eclectic, Van Sant has made highly accessible films (Good Will Hunting), arthouse fare (Gerry) and much in-between (Milk, To Die For), many bearing the hallmark of a director willing to explore lives rarely portrayed on screen. ”"

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (2013) This director has a mix of two different types of film, too; but his a really good films mixed with horrifically bad films not listed above ('Gerry' or 'Last Days'). I hope his two upcoming films fall under the former category."

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (2010) He's made some decent films, but he's some terrible films like 'Gerry' and 'Last Days' that put such a sour taste in my mouth, I can only hope he doesn't try those types of films again."
