5.0 out of 5 stars What a film!!, 10 July 2005
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Own Private Idaho [DVD] (DVD)
what can i say, this is a fantastic flim. the only real problem with this film is the plot...there isn't one really....but it does plod along smoothly and Phoenix and Reeves do a spiffing job. i think this is Phoenixs best role, he is very believeable and he should recive more credit for this film. in fact the film hasn't recived much credit at all and i really dont know why, its beautifully shot and gives realistic feel of the cold dreary lives of these poor hustlers. very moving.
the films about narcoleptic Mike (Pheonix), a hustler in search of his mother. Scott (Reeves) is also a hustler, but with one difference, he has a huge amount of cash waiting for him on his 21st birthday. Scott tags along with Mike to find his mother. as they travel, they try to come to terms with reality, sexuality and their desperate need to belong. one is bound to be hurt as the other drifts away into luxuary leaving his past behind.
i have waited YEARS for this film to be realsed on dvd and so glad it finally has. it certainly makes an impact and i really recommened to ANYONE who is a fan of Gus Van Sants work or Phoenixs beautiful acting talent which was tragically cut short
