A very good movie

2 years ago at Feb 3 11:20
I have always been amazed that, according to Imdb, ‘Good Will Hunting’ is still Gus Van Sant’s best movie. I saw it again recently and, honestly, I think it is a decent drama and an entertaining feature but I don’t see what was so amazing about it. In my opinion, his best movie was actually this flick, his sophomore directing effort. To be honest, it has been a while since I saw it and it... read more

25 From 89: My Favorite Films of 1989 (25 movies items)

"These days, when it comes to movies, there are all kinds of cowboys that one can choose to be. A midnight cowboy, a space cowboy, a rhinestone cowboy, or as in this movie, a drugstore cowboy. And to be frankly honest, with those kinds of choices, I'm of the opinion that I probably wouldn't like to be a cowboy. Maybe a pirate. But definitely not a cowboy."

In my opinion, his best movie was actually this flick, his sophomore directing effort. To be honest, it has been a while since I saw it and it probably needs a re-watch but, back then, I thought it was quite amazing and one of the best movies dealing with drug addiction. At the time, Matt Dillon was one of the leading actors of his generation and he was really good in this (apparently, Dillon cites this film as his personal favorite of all the films he's done and I have to agree with him).

"December 14 I thought this was a great movie. It had Matt Dillon's best performance and a really great script. I also thought the movie was very realistic."
