Drugstore Cowboy – 1989 Van Sant

Features early work from go-to DP for Wes Anderson- Robert Yeoman Certainly an updated take on bonnie and clyde (complete with impotency references)- really nice touch Great jazz score Van Sant’s content/narrative auteur mark and obsessions- youth (specifically troubled youth) exploration in full effect here The best part of the film, which I love, is the reoccurring dream sequences of objects floating in blank (usually black) background with voice over. It starts from the beginning with prior to the film (which is really a full flashback). Really nice film form and stylistic touch Top 10 film of 1989 Highly
