Its 1991; River Phoenix isn’t dead yet and Keanu Reeves essentially looks the same as he does now. Gus Van Sant releases his movie about gay hustlers living on the street in “My Own Private Idaho” and it sets the tone for many LGBTQ movies to come.
Film Critic Roger Ebert joined the chorus of film critics who fawned over the movie for its edgy and raw portrayal of gay hustlers living on the streets. ”The achievement of this film is that it wants to evoke that state of drifting need, and it does.” wrote Ebert. ”There is no mechanical plot that has to grind to a Hollywood conclusion, and no contrived test for the heroes to pass.”
So pop up some popcorn and cuddle up to this 90′s classic.
