I have not. In fact this, milk, and that movie about hunting for will are, sadly, my only encounters with Sant. Although Netflix says I would give Gerry a "3.2 stars."

Exactly. If they don't know how to behave, and feel OK offending others, they get their ass kicked, so they'll think next time before opening their rotten mouths.

Gerry is one of the most beautifully shot and haunting films I've ever seen.

You should see it, My Own Private Idaho, and Last Days. I would also recommend Finding Forrester, which I've always found immensely enjoyable, despite its flaws.

Sorry, but I don't really understand why Joe's psycho posts were deleted and not Gun's "ban him" ones. Without Joe's crazy posts Gun just looks like he's crazy, when it's actually the other way around.

I'll look into your recommendations, although I do question your taste considering your avatar. ;)

I question your sanity because of your "Saving America" rank, but we can still get along. :P

Post Re: Elephant
I was wondering why Gunslinger kept repeating "BAN HIM" over and over again.

On topic, Van Sant's Trilogy of Death (Gerry/Elephant/Last Days) are some of the best films of the millennium.

I found Last Days a bit less enthralling, but still extremely well-shot and moving.

Says the suicidal homo who works for barely better than minimum wage at a soon to close video store. Hey, you called me a psycho so the aforementioned sentence is warranted as far as I'm concerned.

I didn't put it there, it was a result of Magnus' avatar game.

Like most third-entries in a trilogy, Last Days is meh (espically if you've seen Gerry and Elephant before it).
