Mineshaft Gap

It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...

All thumbs.

Even Cowgirls get the Blues (Van Sant, 1993)

Okay. Van Sant is a talented filmmaker with a wonderful gift for directing actors and a genuine eye for Western beauty. Does this film work? I'm not sure. Uma Thurman and company give it their all, and it has a wonderful pictoral beauty, but there is something lacking here that was in My Own Private Idaho.

The film is a lot of fun to watch, however, and Van Sant displays great wit with his prettiness(Mr. Miyagi watching Sissy and Bonanza from the ridge is a sublime moment). A nice companion piece to the greater My Own Private Idaho.
