A very good movie

8 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.

"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 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."
