Basically, it is one of those movies that I saw as a teenager which just had some huge impact on me. I mean, back in those days, I was already fascinated by movies but I hadn’t watch so many great movies yet so I was basically a blank page, ready to absorb pretty much anything. Any... read more

30 From 91: My Favorite Films From 1991 (30 movies items)

"My Own Private Idaho is a film that features two strong performances by then-rising stars with weird names, Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix. However, as good as the leads were, I found this story of two male street walkers embarking on a journey of self-discovery to be a bit more flat that alot of the film critics who praised it at the time. Written and directed by the usually more reliable Gus Van Sant, I would've like to have seen more depth in the script and the general concept, to match the S"

" Cast : River Phoenix, Keanu Reeves, Udo Kier What was it about? Two best friends living on the streets of Portland as hustlers embark on a journey of self discovery and find their relationship stumbling along the way.

"1st viewing PC/TV 3 June 2016 Directed by: Gus Van Sant Yllätti, koska en oikeastaan tiennyt elokuvasta juuri mitään. Yllätys oli kaikin puolin positiivinen, eikä Keanukaan tällä kertaa osannut ärsyttää. "
