A very good movie

11 years, 10 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 hadnโ€™t watch so many great movies yet so I was basically a blank page, ready to absorb pretty much anything. Any... read more

" Date: 6/1/2021 Viewed: Amazon Prime (Rental) Re-watch Note: Seeing that today is the first day of Pride Month, I decided to kick things off with My Own Private Idaho. This is also my first pride month after coming out as bisexual. I haven't watched this movie in nearly 20 years and it still holds up in my opinion. I love the story because I really like the journey that these characters go through. They go on their own personal discovery by learning about themselves. The characters feel belie"

"January 14th Directed by: Gus Van Sant My Own Private Idaho is VERY 90's. If that makes you want to watch it, good, that's what I was going for. You could say it's ahead of it's time since it came out in 1991. I can't even tell you what this movie is about. An underground society of Shakespearean gay-for-pay prostitutes. A road movie with two locales and not much footage of actual travel. Whatever it is it's worth seeing. Blu-Ray."
