Drift along with this moving and lyrical road movie that rides alone in its own singular lane.  Gus Van Sant’s landmark of queer cinema is an audacious, beautiful, heartfelt, and edgily funny work that cemented Van Sant as a master of independent filmmaking. In this loose adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Mike Waters is a hustler afflicted with narcolepsy. Scott Favor is the rebellious son of a mayor. Together, the two travel from Portland, Oregon to Idaho and finally to the coast of Italy in a quest to find Mike’s estranged mother. Along the way they turn tricks for money and drugs, eventually attracting the attention of a wealthy benefactor and sexual deviant. As the two wayward souls, both Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix reached new heights in performance.
