    A surprisingly good film. Particularly liked the way that different perspectives were examined. Okay, so it was a bit mushy at times but overall a cut above the norm, I thought.

    I was transfixed on my seat in the movie theater at seeing such emotionally complex, nuanced and virtuoso acting by this couple of well known and acclaimed actors. It is like some sort of Argerich and Barenboim piano duo. If you want to see what acting is in the hands, or bodies, of such people, then go and see it because just this will get you thinking for a while.

    Leaving aside that for a moment, what also made me love this film was the emotional multi dimensionality of the the story. To spoil the story a bit, it's basically about a guy who gets the Nobel prize in literature but it was his wife in the shadows the one that actually did the writing. Of course, one can see here a feminist subject, a reivindication, since she was told in her youth that she will never become a famous writer simply because she's a woman, not matter how much talent she may have (which she, of course, has in abundance). Thus, she gets married with her teacher, a good writer but which lacks the spark that makes a good writer into Nobel material; his wife is the one that has the spark. Thus, she starts correcting his novels and they end basically co-writing them, with her actually doing most of the job that makes the novels Nobel worth. So, so far, one could say, okay, yes, true, that was really unfair for her and this has to stop in the real world too. This is one possible take of the film, which is right at some level. But I'm afraid that many people and critics will simplify the story to just that, while I found it much more complex and fascinating, since both characters have many contradictory emotions about all this, they really seem to love each other and at some point one asks if each of them could have had a life without the other. This is not some sort of apology to the husband, or the system, but I simply liked that the film portrayed human nature in its manifold and contradictory facets, the things that make life the complex thing which it is rather than a simple straight line of story, and I left the cinema confused and thinking about all that. And that's what good movies do!

    My Own Private Idaho (1991)
    Directed by: Gus Van Sant
    Starring: River Phoenix & Keanu Reeves

    Can't find some strong argument to convince me what the message is, but My Own Private Idaho definitely is heartbreaking.
