For years this has been on my mental ‘Films I Need to Watch’. Early Keanu Reeves, even Dracula-era, could still do a fine turn and River Phoenix performance just makes you think what could of been. It’s Gus Van Sant so it’s delightfully kooky of course sometimes to the point of irritation. The mixture of modern day family road trip and Shakespearean adaptation gives the feel of 70s era American odyssey. Some incredible looking sequences, at times impenetrable but always intriguing. Worth the wait.
