Gerry (2003)

Gus Van Sant's newest film Gerry has already earned a notorious reputation for being slow and pointless. It tries moviegoers' patience and has supposedly caused them to walk out en masse. For some people, that might hold true, but Gerry could well be Van Sant's masterpiece. It easily ranks with -- and at times surpasses -- his best work to date: Drugstore Cowboy, My Own Private Idaho and To Die For. read more...

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Only a few times in cinema history has an artist gone mad, drunk on his own power and genius, and created a loony, foolhardy, giant-sized masterpiece. Usually this comes on the heels of some huge box office success that allows both artist and financiers to believe that he can do this mad thing. D.W. Griffith mounted Intolerance, the biggest movie ever made after the huge success of The Birth of a Nation. Erich von Stroheim took on a 12-hour version of Frank Norris' McTeague, now called Greed and existing only in a 140 minute version (a newer version uses stills to restore lost scenes and runs 242 minutes). Bernardo Bertolucci made a five-hour, intercontinental epic called 1900 after the success of Last Tango in Paris. And Werner Herzog attempted to tell the story of Fitzcarraldo by hauling a life-sized ship over a life-sized mountain. read more...

Stalker (1979)

After Solaris (1972), the famous Russian master filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky dabbled in science fiction once more with Stalker, an even more ambiguous and intelligent film. While Solaris was set in the claustrophobic, cluttered boredom of a spaceship, Stalker takes place mainly in The Zone, a mysterious area reportedly created by a meteorite, although many believe it is the result of something Divine. read more...

My Own Private Idaho (1991)

Gus Van Sant's My Own Private Idaho was my favorite film in 1991. I saw it three times in the theater (easy, given that I worked at a movie theater and could get free passes to it). I was drawn to it perhaps the way earlier audiences might have been drawn to an outlaw film like Rebel Without a Cause. It's a mixed-up grab bag of linear storytelling and experimental techniques, with elements of Shakespeare mashed up against a totally modern story of sexualized teens. River Phoenix gives perhaps the strongest performance of his remarkable, mercurial, and tragically short career as Mike, a narcoleptic street hustler. While servicing a client, he meets Scott Favor (Keanu Reeves), a fellow hustler who belongs to a wealthy family. They begin to hang out together, and with a Falstaff-like figure. They travel, there's a betrayal, a song by the Pogues, and things drift ever onward like a road that goes all the way around the world. It's as touching a portrait of loneliness and need as was ever created in the American independent cinema. read more...
