A very good movie

7 years, 8 months ago at Feb 2 12:53
To be honest, it has been ages since I have this seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. 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

The 11 Best LGBT Films of All Time (11 movies items)

" River Phoenix gives one of the most memorable performances of his tragically short career in 1991’s My Own Private Idaho, playing a gay hustler and prostitute suffering with narcolepsy who falls for Keanu Reeves’ conman Scott Favor. It has to go on record as one of the most significant LGBT films of the decade, which takes a closer look at those on the margins of society."

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"

"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. "
