A very good movie

9 years, 6 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

"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."

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 1991โ€™s My Own Private Idaho, playing a gay hustler and prostitute suffering with narcolepsy who falls for Keanu Reevesโ€™ 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."
