Summary
  • "Drugstore Cowboy, My Own Private Idaho, Good Will Hunting, Finding Forrester, Elephant, and Milk are just some of the works by which the world knows Oscar-nominated film director Gus Van Sant. Van Sant's unique interpretation of controversial subject matter continues to attract talented actors and craftspeople of the highest caliber. What drives this master's creative vision?"
  • "Arranged chronologically, Gus Van Sant: His Own Private Cinema provides a comprehensive overview of the life and art of this talented director, covering his mainstream, commercial, and avant-garde projects. More than a biography, the book examines Van Sant's incredibly diverse body of work, exploring the influence of his open homosexuality; of fine art, literature, and music; and of the range of cinema styles to which he has been exposed." "Stressing Van Sant's wide-ranging content, genre, style, and cinematic presentation, author Vincent LoBrutto details the filmmaker's autobiographical tendencies and how he uses the film craft, literature, popular music, and fine arts to create his movies. The book dissects ways in which each of Van Sant's films reflects his sexual orientation, whether the individual film has a gay theme or not. Because of its importance to Van Sant's films, the book also offers a history of gay culture, past and present, covering its influence on art, music, theater, and dance, as well as community, activism, and prejudice."--BOOK JACKET
